Lamb numbers more than halved and the quality was mostly good with only a very limited supply of store lambs. Numbers were limited over all categories and despite a smaller buying group the market sold to a dearer trend of $6 to $10/head compared to the last sale.

Restocking lambs reached $118/head. Medium and heavy trade lambs sold from $160 to $195/head averaging 790c to 820c/kg cwt. Heavy lambs sold to $205 and the extra heavy lambs reached $215/head. The best price for hoggets was $191/head.

Mutton numbers lifted and there were plenty of heavy sheep penned. Prices lifted $9 on the heavy weights while light and medium 1 and 2 score sheep fell $20/head. Medium weight ewes sold from $101 to $144/head. Heavy crossbred ewes $180 to $206/head.
