Total Yarding: 5,782
Numbers eased for a total yarding of 5782 sheep and lambs. The yarding was dominated by mutton with the heavy ewes selling to $44 and wethers to $46/head. Processors showed a greater demand for prime lambs, lifting prices by $10/head. While the prime lines gained with demand, plain lines once again received no interest from buyers selling to minimal values.
