I'm trucking a couple of steers to Market today, They will be sold tomorrow.
we expect to gross around the $7-$800 mark each, but at auction who knows.
Recent sales have been trending upward backed by grass fed restocker demand. These steers will probaly go to a feedlot but even so feedlotters compete with farmer/ restockers in this weight range. In my opinion they could do with just a bit of finishing off on high quality hay, lucern (alphalpha) or grain.

We paid around $200 for these as weaned calves just shy of 12 months ago. The intention was to sell them about 3 months ago but due to some logisical problems that never happened. Kinda glad I didnt.
Prices were a bit higher back then but these steers have stacked on size and weight since then so any loss will be offset.

Recent sales
Wodonga
Competition was fierce on the grown heavy steers where prices were $710-$900.
This equated to 165-223c/kg on a liveweight basis - up 10 c/kg on the previous store sale.

Colac
a good selection of 400kg-plus steers - due to the season - with heavy steers, 480-550kg, making 175-185c/kg ($840 - $962)
and steers 400-470kg all making upwards of 210kg. ($840 and Up.)

Yea: November 12, 2010
Yearling Angus heifers sold to $960 and yearling Angus steers to $910 in a strong, grass-driven market.
A pen of 12 Angus heifers, 12 to 14 months-old, from Murrindindi Station, Molesworth, returned the top price while a line from Glenbrae Station, Yea, about 12 months-old, also sold well to reach $915.
In the steer pens, prices topped at $910 for a pen of five Angus, 12 months-old, from R Barnett of Seymour while slightly older steers (14-15 months) from John Waterhouse, Schiavello Pty Ltd, Molesworth, also broke the $900-barrier.

The best of the older steers, 12 to 15 months-old, generally sold from $780 to $895

The vid linked below shows a little of the auction process for those interested however it does have a sound problem. Start the vid then pause it allow the dialoge you hear to play through till it finishes then restart the vid.

@dadpad,
I've taken my turn with roast suckling pig and lamb on spits that you hand crank. I'd give it a go - on someone else's spit.

I see love, and tust in those big brown eyes... Boy; are they in for some sheer terror!!! All that fear and pain make meat fun to eat... It is just like gasoline... The more blood we spill to have it the more fun it is going no where... Pass me a burger... Hold the health, and pile on the heart disease...

No love no trust the bastards jumped fences on the way to the yards and I had to get em out of a neighbours paddock. Then tried to get back past me. I am teling you, from close up there was not one skerrick of love or trust in those eyes. Born to die.
But they are economically nice steers...and just a little bit fancy.

Interestingly Bees are gonna have a very hard time this year. BAD locust season this year. Aerial spraying for locusts will have a big effect on apiarists. Expect honey to rise in price and or be replaced by watery, hormone and chemical riddled chinese honey

@dadpad,
I took my steers to market or home butchered at about 1100 lbs (500 kg), the finishing was alfalfa/grass/clover hay with ground corn.

good thought however they may not survive the winter.
look here for contacts to discuss the idea with.

New beekeepers are often advised to join a local beekeeping groups. I think this is the single most useful thing they can do. It provides an invaluable source of information, instruction, advice and assistance. Often beekeeping clubs have equipment such as an extractor which can be borrowed or rented when necessary
