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

1936 sheep and lambs sold, 3846 less than last week. Only a small offering of lambs due to the inclement weather and the roller coaster ride of the sucker lamb indicator. The yarding was predominately export and heavy trade suckers, the larger field of buyers lifted prices from $2 to $5. Due to the limited yarding light lambs were hard to quote, although 16 to 18kg lambs sold up to $130. Medium trade lambs 20 to 22kg were from $135 to $147. The 22 to 24kg heavier trade lambs sold from $152 to $168. Export lambs from 24 to 30kg plus sold and presented extremely well from $181 to $207.
