Commentary

A very similar yarding to last week in sheep and lamb supplies. An improvement in quality with Lambs showing good finish and weight were more prominent this week across all agents. Although some buyers were absent the market enjoyed gains across most categories with store and feeder lambs lifting marginally by $2/$4 and heavier lambs by $8/ $10. Hoggets of every breed and sex were pushing $90 and mutton was the big mover gaining $20/$30/head.

Cross-bred and Merino store lambs sold from $10 to $67 while light lambs were selling from $58 to $84/head. Trade lambs returned $83 to $121 and heavy lambs realized $137/head.

Most wethers and wether hoggets were making $35 to $90 while the better Merino ewe hoggets returned $31 to $82 and Crossbred and Dorper hoggets sold to a top of $90/head.

Boner ewes made $15 to $45 while medium ewes were selling from $30 to $65 and heavy ewes returned $50 to $80/head. Young rams ranged from $40 to $70 and old Rams from $10 to $43/head.
