Farmers talk about how Go-Stock takes the pressure off decision making, frees cash flow to enable farm development, and adds value to their business.

Go-Stock is available for trading and finishing sheep and beef. 

PGG Wrightson buys the stock and retains ownership, meaning no initial cash outlay for the farmers. However, the farmer decides when and where to sell the stock, then receives the resulting trading margin, less fees and selling costs.

Go-Stock is simple to set up and easy to use.

Livestock Market Update: Keen interest in South Island on-farm lamb sales

20 January 2021

Good feed conditions driving steady demand for store lambs

With plenty of rain over Christmas, especially in South Canterbury, North and East Otago where it was sorely needed, farmers throughout the South Island are benefiting from good feed conditions.

Based on that confidence, demand at the South Island on-farm lamb sales is strong, and expected to remain steady until at least mid-February. 

Farmers in all districts are looking for store lambs, with interest in Otago and Southland particularly evident.

Since the pre-Christmas backlog of ewes and lambs waiting to go to the works cleared up, the market indicators for lamb seem consistent, and anyone offering store lambs for South Island sale can anticipate good prices for the next several weeks. 

Positive feed conditions have also resulted in satisfactory results to date at cattle sales.

Livestock Market Update: Plenty of feed on North Island farms

20 January 2021

Caution in the market keeps buoyancy in check

North Island feed conditions benefited from good rainfall in most districts post-Christmas. However, because many farmers had weaned early and moved ewes on after the drought of last year, stock rates were insufficient to take advantage.

While that might have otherwise led to significant activity at North Island bullock and ewe fairs, buoyancy has been repressed by caution around the prospects for export demand for red meat. Prices for heavy steers sit around $2.65 to $2.70 per kilogram, while traditional lighter steers, around 500 kilograms live weight, are averaging $2.80 per kilogram.

Ewe fairs are tracking similarly, with stock numbers through the saleyards lower than last year. Good prices are indicated at the works for the next couple of months, with the main chains having freed up space relatively early this year, as noted, due to farmers selling prior to Christmas.
