Commentary

Lambs numbers increased and the quality improved. There were runs of short skinned and hard fed trade weights, good numbers of heavy lambs, the extra heavy lambs remain in short supply and there was a lot of light and secondary lambs. Dorpers were better supplied. Restockers were active on the lighter weights. The market sold to stronger trends.

Restocking lambs were $25 to $30 stronger selling from $70 to $136/head. The better trade lambs were dearer by $10 to $15/head while secondary trades were firm. Prices ranged from $125 to $179/head with the better trade lambs averaging 680c to 700c with the best lambs 730c to 760c/kg. Secondary trade lambs were 600c to 630c/kg. Lambs 24 to 26kg ranged from $145 to $186/head or 660c to 705c for the better end.
