The yarding of sheep and cattle was not large which would have helped but vendors selling into this sale had no reason to feel aggrieved and there could well be further adjustments in the future. Less than 1000 prime lambs were on offer and the sale prices had no more than a slight ease with some lines seemingly selling very well. The top money was $151 for four shorn ram lambs from Michael Rolston and M McCarthy sold 15 for $149. Less than half of last week s ewe yarding was a positive for the market but some buyers merely watched which would suggest they see a further downside in the ewe market as well. Works space has become much harder to obtain and some pens that sold above works money showed reasonable mouths and could well come back on the market after having consorted with the rams. The ewe market lifted a little midway through the sale but the poorer grazing ewes were hard to shift for those vendors who had a sale reserve. As stated previously, the ewe flock is at low levels and there will inevitably be a lift again in the future. The same pressures of recent weeks are still impacting on the beef market but, once again, the yarding tally was not high with only a handful of cows that were not of the highest quality and the prime cattle were only average. Short weeks do not help prime cattle auctions and most of the bulls were of a store type again this week with some more dairy cross weaners in as well.

We are proud to be partnered with a university that is helping New Zealand retain its position as a world agricultural leader. CASE IH has also returned to sponsor the Tractor Pull event this year. Ms Riddell said they are looking for- ward to putting on the Tractor Pull, which allows farmers, contractors and tractor enthusiasts to show off their modified machines. Other events are the Stihl Timber Aces, Central Districts Double Power Fencing competition and the National Excavator Competition. This year s big rural competition prize is a Suzuki ATV and Brent Smith trailer filled with goodies. It is open to anyone with a rural address; the winner will be drawn on the Saturday afternoon. Held March 15 till 17, this year s Field Days has over 500 exhibitors lined-up. Blast from the past Hundreds of items of vintage machinery, tractors, trucks, and working horses were on display in Kairanga last weekend. The Manawatu Vintage Machinery Club held its annual Manawatu Vintage Ag Expo over two days last weekend with a large display of machinery, implements, traction engines and memorabilia. The day also included demonstrations, parades and food stalls.
