Not all of the usual buying group attended with one interstate exporter and a few local processors absent in a very strong market that saw price increases of up to $30/head in places to regain last week’s cheaper prices.

Very light 1 and 2 score lambs under 18kg cwt to the processor to suit MK orders, sold from $126 to $184, to gain $15/head. Lambs to the trade weighing 18 to 22kg, sold from $188 to $239, while the 22 to 24kg category made from $203 to $258, to be $15 to $30/head dearer with an average range of 930c to 1,010c/kg cwt. Lambs weighing 24 to 26kg sold from $238 to $272, up $10 to $20/head to average 990c/kg cwt.

Export 4 score, 26 to 30kg lambs sold from $260 to $285, gaining $10 to $15/head and averaging 970c to 990c/kg cwt. Those over 30kg sold from $311 to $340/head, to average 902c/kg cwt. Merino lambs were in limited numbers and sold from $123 to $190 for the lighter weights and to a top of $248/head for the heavier weights. Lambs back to the paddock sold from $92 to $197 to be $10/head stronger.

Sheep numbers also decreased to 2,835 in a plain to good quality yarding. Buyers were active and demand was stronger than previous weeks in a dearer market to be $5 to $15/head up on last week. Heavy Merino wethers made from $208 to $225/head with an average range of 690c to 750c/kg cwt. The lighter weights sold from $128 to $195/head.
