Abstract

Beef breeders commonly market their cattle as weaners and up to a year old between November and February and thus avoid carrying them over the late summer and autumn period when weight losses usually occur on normal paddock grazing. The effect of this concerted selling is a pronounced downward trend in price levels which are not normally regained until the following May-June period, by which time the pressure of supply has eased considerably.
