Lamb numbers increased slightly with sheep supply steady. The quality of the lamb offering was very mixed and included large numbers of merino lambs showing varying weights and condition.. there were very few good quality new season lambs penned. There was increased processor competition with the return of one absentee from the previous sale.
A varying market trend through the lambs with the Crossbred lambs to process selling to dearer trends with odd classes showing strong gains. The plainer quality lambs struggled to maintain recent levels. The merino lambs averaged down with a greater supply.
Well finished sheep and Merino’s carrying longer skins were keenly sought by processors. Once again dearer trends resulted with some strong gains in places.
