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

2,387 sheep sold, 583 more than last week. The yarding increased this week, with increases in restocking lines. Heavier finished lambs were in short supply. These large offerings of forward store lambs saw restockers and wholesalers competing in a healthy market. Export lambs were scarce with 24-30kg lambs at $155-$170, selling at firm rates. Trade lambs 22-24kg also scarce, were from $1238-$145. The heaver end of forward store lambs 35-40kg sold $100-$124, smaller types were $31-$75.
