Last week saw the Mall continue recovery in prices that began two weeks ago. All average prices for both the calf and calf tables, and some of them quite significantly.

The only exception was the upper quarter of the animal in the 300-399kg section bullock.

The most noticeable improvement came in the 500-599kg Department, Department of Commerce, which for almost the entire year has been a leading light for the price, but in the light of a 400-499kg.

In General, average prices rose 11C/kg or $ 44-55/HD, while the top quarter of the beast jumped 17c/kg, which is 68-85/BG.

In General, the body of the table the average values increased from the 7-11S/kg, with 17c/kg in top quarter of best quality 400-499kg bullock the biggest leap in terms of quality / price in any of the sub-units.

These figures reflect the fact that all the leaders of the March I talked to last weekend told me that the biggest jumps in price is still in the best quality animals. A number of my mini-markets have comments of the managers said that the poor animals, whether ox or cow continues to be a challenging sale. And I have no doubt that they do.

However, last week, returns to the ring indicate that both poor calf and heifer recently lost to recover some ground. Indeed, 18s/recovery kg among prices for those of worse quality of Bulls in the 300-399kg of the accounts division solely for the fact that the average prices in General in this section the pink 7C/kg.

The next big leap in prices for those who are poorer type taxis came to a section 600 kg+, where fewer animals rose 12C/kg, which is not unimportant €72/HD. 400-599kg, the poorer the type of Bulls rose 5-9c/kg or €30-45/BG.

The motion on the table chick is not so dramatic, but still welcome. Section heifers that have seen the most action in price increase rates were on the 400-499kg Department, where the price increase was well-balanced quality units. The overall average increase amounted to 12C/kg, or from €48-60/HD, with the approach of prices to the upper and lower quarter finely balanced at 10C/kg, and 11C/kg, respectively.

Three weeks ago I asked the question, as the first rains throughout Central and southern part of the country, whether trade Mart was like a coiled spring waiting to be released; last week, that the spring is unwound, a few.

Part of what has led to higher prices for March last week, due to the fact that prices at the factory leveled and are now starting to climb slightly. Another thing is that the number of cattle markets has also increased.

This allowed those who sold cattle over the dry period, the choice last week that was not enough, as sellers are held to wait for the sea weather to arrive.
