Commentary

There was a small increase in the lamb supply while sheep numbers fell by almost half. It was a very mixed quality penning of lambs with condition also varying considerably. The usual buyers were in attendance however the restocker competition was all local.

The quality of the lambs was a major contributor price change with trends varying. The restocker lambs sold to cheaper trends however quality was only fair. Light weight trade lambs sold to dearer trends, evident in the Dorpers. These lambs attracting more competition due to the lack of Crossbreds. Well finished trade weights up to 22kg dressed sold to slightly cheaper trends. This carried through into the heavier weights. The heavy and extra heavy weights attracted strong competition to sell to a dearer trend.

There was a large supply of plainer condition lightweight Merino ewes carrying a Spring skin. They sold to cheaper trends for the most part with the plainest making little more than skin value. The medium and heavy weight sheep also sold to cheaper trends while a single small pen of extra heavy weighs were a shade dearer.
