Numbers remained similar this sale and quality continues to be mixed. There was a handy offering of finished lambs available along with the plaine secondary types. The usual buyers were present and competing in a market that fluctuated with quality but generally showed a cheaper trend.

Trade weight lambs were firm to $3/head easier particularly on the off types. Prices ranged from $156 to $201/head. Heavy lambs to 26kg received from $192 to $218/head. A good run of extra heavyweights were firm to $3 better to sell from $212 to $295/head. Carcase prices averaged 775c to 820c/kg. Heavy Merino lambs sold from $296 to $243/head.

Mutton quality was very mixed with an increased offering of plainer ewes penned. Heavy Merinos made from $180 to $230/head. Crossbred ewes ranged from $173 to $246/head. Lighter Merinos sold from $105 to $165/head.
