Yarding 33 681, com­pris­ing lambs 25 011

(7083) and sheep 8670 (1600) Lamb num­bers in­creased by 7083 head with the ma­jor­ity of the yarding made up of 21 600 young lambs.

Qual­ity was good as the spring flush con­tin­ues to flow at Bendigo.

All the reg­u­lar buy­ers were present and op­er­ated in a slightly more se­lec­tive man­ner as the mar­ket tended to fluc­tu­ate in an over­all eas­ier mar­ket from $2 to $7/head cheaper for the heavy and medium-weight young lambs.

Light­weight lambs sold to more com­pe­ti­tion due to more re­stocker in­quiry from mostly Bal­larat, Birchip and Bendigo, sell­ing $5/head ei­ther side of firm de­pend­ing on the qual­ity.

They paid mostly $107 to $138 for good store lambs and $83 to $110/head for lighter lots.

Light trade-weight two- and three-score newsea­son lambs made $103 to $120, av­er­ag­ing 615¢/kg cwt; medium trade-weights two- and three-scores sold from $123 to $148; and heav­ier trade-weight lambs three- and fourscores sold from $145 to $158/head as the costs ranged from mostly 580¢ to 640¢ to av­er­age an es­ti­mated 610¢/kg cwt.

Heavy young lambs three- and four-score made $157 to $172, with the ex­tra-heavy ex­port lambs $166 to the mar­ket top of $195/head as they av­er­aged close to 595¢/kg cwt.

A lim­ited num­ber of old lambs were penned; the medium trade-weights sold from $110 to $148, with the heavy old lambs mak­ing $144 to $178 and a pen of ex­tra-heavy Merino hoggets reach­ing $180/head.

There was also a lift in the sheep sup­ply of 1600, as a total of 8670 head were penned, and it was dom­i­nated by lines of Merino ewes off­s­hears and heavy cross­bred ewes of mixed qual­ity with all weights and grades rep­re­sented.

Re­stock­ers did pur­chase some Merino ewes for $97 and $115/head.

Prices for sheep also showed an eas­ier trend, as light sheep sold $2 to $4 lower, medium-weights were $3 to $7 back and the heavy sheep sold from mostly $10 to $20/head cheaper on last sale.

Light one- and two-score mut­ton made $53 to $72, medium two- and three-score sheep sold from $70 to $84 and full-wool Merino ewes made $103/head, as the Merino ewe mut­ton av­er­aged 370¢/kg cwt.

Heavy cross­bred three-score ewes made $81 to $108 to av­er­age 315¢ and the ex­tra-heavy­weights four- and five-score sold from $91 to $118/head, av­er­ag­ing 292¢/kg cwt.

Heavy Merino ewes sold to $114 and the medium to heavy Merino wethers made from $81 to $101/head as they av­er­aged an es­ti­mated 365¢/kg cwt.

Rams of all breeds made from $25 to $80/head.
