Market reports and prices
MLA's Market Information Service provides producers with accurate, timely and independent market information, allowing them to make profitable business decisions.
Through the National Livestock Reporting Service, a range of cattle, sheep and goat market statistics are collected every week. These include:
- Saleyard prices
- Over-the-hooks price indicators
- Feeder cattle price indicators
- Sheep skin price indicators
- Indicative slaughter numbers

Saleyard reports are produced on a daily basis and are available within two hours of the conclusion of the market (for a list of markets currently reported by the NLRS, click here). Over-the-hooks price indicators, feedlot price indicators and indicative slaughter figures are compiled from a range of abattoirs across the eastern states and are published on a Monday afternoon. Skins price indicators are released on Friday afternoon.
