Livestock 2019 Herd Scheme Values released by the IRD Livestock 2019 Herd Scheme Values (National Average Market Values) have just been released by IRD and for once have not given us too many surprises. Many of our herds in New Zealand are based on Herd Scheme values whether it is for Dairy or Beef Cattle, sheep, goat, deer and pig farmers The other commonly used valuation method is National Standard Cost (NSC). This is the "standard" rearing and growing cost which is announced in January each year, but is affected by the actual purchase oosts on each individual fam so actual NSC values are not consistent between farms. They bare also usually lower than Herd Scheme values. Firstly looking at Dairy Cattle values, these have decreased only slightly for all age groups Values affect decisions such as whether stock from the 2018 values. For example a moxed age cow has decreased from $1,529 in 2018 too remembering that once they are on Herd $1,513 for 2019. For the first time for many years, this is the smallest change we have seen. With milk prices on the increase we would normally be expecting livestock values to generation. And cessation of farming prior to follow suit as it has done in the past. However, 1st November may mean livestock values from the current economic climate is one of uncertainty and farmers have been reluctant to pay high prices for their stock. on NSC be transferred to Herd Scheme, Scheme it is near impossible to reverse this. Also, there are complex rules for selling to associated parties, including to the younger the previous year need to be used See the table below comparing Herd Scheme values for Dairy Cows, Beef cows, mixed age Ewes and Does over one year for the past four years Beef cattle have also resulted in slightly lower values except for breeding beef bulls, which have bucked the trend and increased substantially from $3,004 in 2018 to $3,407 in 2019. Remember this is the value of a bull owned by a bull beef breeder, not for a bull simply on-hand to be used for mating with the cows.
