Tim Leigh 🖊OLMC finished stock Marketing Report July 2023

📍 Prime Cattle

The current trade for finished cattle seems to be holding its own. Unfortunately, demand has weakened slightly and most abattoirs report that their books are for the most part full until September. Grass crops that have seen the rain continue to offer feed in front of the cattle, hopefully seeing them through until the autumn.
