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

393 sheep and lambs sold, 686 less than last week. The quality from the small yarding was very mixed and ordinary. The usual buyers gallery was in attendance. The large correction in lambs prices was evident as seen in interstate markets early in the week.  Only small numbers of suckers came to hand and they were only 18 to 20kg selling from $155 to $163, back by $10 to $15. From then on only old lambs filled the pens, these sold from $110 to $135 for 20 to 22kg types. While smaller and lighter lambs 16 to 18kg were $55 to $85. Smaller inferior types were picked up by wholesalers at $40 to $50. Mutton prices held firm with heavy XB Ewes from $120 to $155.
