The King Country region is very proud to offer five self-shedding ram sales in November.
Kaahu Genetics are one of the first in New Zealand to be offering Kaahu White Shedding Rams – Kaahu purchased Australian White rams from Tattykeel Stud in Australia and also purchased 43 Australian White Stud ewes and imported in the same shipment to NZ, The breed can be described as hardy, heavy weight lambs that reach slaughter weights early. The Australian White was developed to be self-replacing, haired, meat sheep that requires minimal maintenance. It is suitable for a variety of environments and are adaptable to cold and hot climates. Their growth rate is repaid and finish well on grass. They do not require shearing and negate the need to treat them for parasites. This is an easy-care animal that is very profitable.

The number of cattle coming forward to the market in the spring has been larger than recent years as farmers off load as areas such as Canterbury and parts of Otago have become dry. Also not helping is the cold and wet conditions in the South, limiting feed availability.
The store cattle market has eased over the last two weeks as buyers become more selective in their purchases. There is still interest in traditionally bred steers.
Some South Island vendors have chosen to funnel cattle into the North Island Market where prices have been more competitive although the North Island has come under pricing pressure due to volumes of numbers coming forward.
