Market reports & 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

For a list of NLRS market indicator specifications, including their frequency of publication, please click here.

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.
