BENDIGO SHEEP SALE

Shepparton News - Country News - - LIVESTOCK NEWS -

Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 30 Yard­ing 34 000 (408), com­pris­ing lambs

27 000 (408) and sheep 7000 (0) Lamb num­bers were sim­i­lar, although qual­ity de­te­ri­o­rated with fewer heavy and well-fin­ished trade-weight lambs on of­fer.

The mar­ket fluc­tu­ated and over­all there wasn’t the buyer in­ten­sity to fill or­ders like there has been in re­cent weeks.

The best slaugh­ter lambs held their prices, while plainer types lack­ing shape and fin­ish showed an eas­ier trend of $1 to $5/head.

Prices reached a top of $190/head for a small pen lot of ex­tra-heavy shorn lambs weigh­ing more than 30 kg cwt.

The best price for young lambs was $178 for 27 kg cwt and, high­light­ing the short­age of weight, there were only 10 pens that sold above $170/head.

The main runs of heavy trade-weight lambs, 22-24 kg, made from $144 to $168, to av­er­age $158/head.

The main price fluc­tu­a­tions were across the medium and lighter-weight do­mes­tic lambs, where there was a lot of qual­ity vari­a­tion and buy­ers dis­counted the plainer lots. Th­ese lambs to pro­ces­sors ranged from $125 to $140/head.

Due to the way the mar­ket fluc­tu­ated there was a wide range in es­ti­mated car­case prices, with the bulk of sales av­er­ag­ing from 600¢ to 625¢/kg cwt.

Fewer store or­ders op­er­ated this week, how­ever, any big lines of well-bred small lambs con­tin­ued to sell strongly from $108 to $122/head. Some of the smallest lambs were dearer again as some buy­ers try to re­stock at less than $100/head.

The sheep sale was more var­ied this week, with more ewes in var­ied skin lengths.

Prices were firm to dearer as car­case prices lifted again. Two ex­porters were par­tic­u­larly strong on heavy cross­bred ewes, which lifted prices to an av­er­age of $129 or $7/head more than a week ago.

Most Merino sheep sold from $90 to $120 de­pend­ing on size and wool, with just odd pens more than $130 and large wethers mak­ing to a top of $146/head.
