NEXT MOUNT GAMBIER STORE CATTLE SALE

FRIDAY, 13TH DECEMBER 2019 AT 10AM. 

SHEEP AND LAMBS Drafted & Presented by Auctioneer Scott Miller and Liam Durcan.  

12,122 lambs and sheep sold, 5052 more than last week.  The increased yarding consisted of less export lambs, some larger runs of trade lambs with a large proportion of restocking lines selling to strong competition.  The market did fluctuate throughout but overall returns to the vendor were good.  This movement in the market was due to not all buyers being active. Export lambs sold from $158 to $190 with extra heavy 26 to 30kg at $184 to $212.  Trade lambs sold to fully firm rates from $145 to $160 for 22 to 24kg range.  This section of the sale was very buoyant.  Light trade lambs scores 2 and 3 were well supported by multiple orders from $136 to $146 and lighter lambs again from $62 to $154.  MWJ had an outstanding run of light fresh sucker lambs selling from $102 to $145.

Quotations:  GC & RIK Reichelt 319L from $145 to $174.  LJ & GE Little 248L from $138 to $176.  Earlside 346L from $149 to $162.  Bassendean Farm 1177L from $120 to $139.
