Lamb numbers lifted and the quality was mostly plain. There were a few pens of very good heavy and extra heavy weights but quality and condition fell away quickly to a lot of lambs that lacked cover. All weights were penned and all the usual buyers were operating in a cheaper market. Prices slipped $4 on the heavy trades and $8 to $10 on the heavy and extra heavy lambs.

The 2 score processing lambs to 16kg cwt sold from $74 to $109/head. Medium and heavy trade weights to 22kg ranged from $101 to $167 and 22 to 24kg lambs $165 to $179/head. The better lambs were averaging 720c to 750c/kg cwt, while the secondary lambs mostly 600c to 650c/kg cwt. Heavy lambs sold from $165 to $208 and extra heavy weights $209 to $238/head. Best priced hogget reached $170/head.

Mutton numbers were back and the quality was very mixed. Some pens of ewes were pushed by restockers but the overall trend was cheaper. Medium weight ewes sold from $110 to $138/head. Heavy crossbreds $178 to $188 and the best Merino ewes reached $165/head.
