Total Yarding: 5,600
Quality was fair to good as agents offered 4,800 lambs and 800 sheep. The yarding presented reasonably well following heavy overnight rain with good competition from the usual buying group and some additional restocker activity seeing prices up by $5 to $10 across the lamb yarding. Hoggets also lifted by a similar ammount as mutton prices remained firm to marginally dearer.
Extremely light young lambs sold from $26 to $27 as light weights ranged from $21 to $55. Medium weight lambs sold from $44 to $68 as heavy lambs ranged from $94 to $145 and extreme heavy weights $136 to $145/head.
Extremely light older lambs sold from $26 to $86 as medium weights made $54 to $111 and heavy weights $116 to $134. Extreme heavy weights sold from $130 to $140/head.
Hoggets sold from $38 to $90 as medium ewe mutton sold from $44 to $68 and heavy weights $28 to $45/head.
