Commentary

Lamb numbers were steady and quality was once again good for the well finished lines while the secondary lambs were very mixed. There were mainly trade and heavies penned along with a run of store lambs. All the buyers were operating along with one extra and competition continues to be stronger resulting in a slightly dearer market.

Light lambs to the restockers sold from $57 to $78 down $20/head while secondary light trade were cheaper by similar levels.Medium and heavy trade weight lambs were firm to a little dearer and averaged 630c to 650c/kg cwt. Heavy weight trade 23 to 24kg sold from $146 to $165/head. Heavy weight lambs were firm and averaged from 650c to 670c/kg cwt. Heavy weight lambs sold from $160 to $170 while extra heavy weight sold from $166 to $208/head.

Mutton numbers fell and quality varied while prices fell $10 to $20 with heavy first cross ewes selling from $71 to $110/head.
