BENDIGO SHEEP SALE

Shepparton News - Country News - - LIVESTOCK -

Mon­day, Septem­ber 17 Lamb num­bers lifted to 25 000 head, com­pris­ing 18 000 young lambs and 7000 old­sea­son lambs, which were very mixed for breed type and con­di­tion.

The mar­ket fluc­tu­ated on qual­ity to record var­ied re­sults, par­tic­u­larly in the old lamb sec­tion.

All the reg­u­lar buy­ers were present, although some pro­ces­sors had lower pur­chase vol­umes than re­cent weeks.

The main runs of heavy young lambs were firm to $5/head eas­ier, while medium and lighter weight pens were of­ten a few dol­lars dearer.

Help­ing sup­port the lighter end of the young lamb mar­ket was strong store buyer ac­tiv­ity, which spanned from Hamil­ton in the south through to Echuca and Swan Hill.

Bid­ding for old-sea­son lambs was no­tice­ably dearer on any well-fin­ished heavy and trade pens, while se­condary lots in poor skins were up to $15/head cheaper.

The main runs of well-pre­sented trade-weight lambs, weigh­ing 22-26 kg cwt, sold from $188 to $225 to av­er­age just over $200/head. These well-fin­ished young lambs were es­ti­mated to av­er­age from 810¢ to 830¢/kg cwt.

Young lambs with less weight and fin­ish, weigh­ing around 18-21 kg, sold mainly from $140 to $178/head to track from 750¢ to 780¢/kg.

Se­condary old lambs, of­ten in small pen lots and in rough skins, were dis­counted.

Spe­cial­ist store lamb fin­ish­ers from Bal­larat paid from $130 to $150 for big­ger-framed young lambs, while smaller lambs to the pad­dock sold from $29 to $126/head in a very solid re­sult.

The sup­ply of heavy young lambs was more lim­ited this week, with only a few pens pre­sent­ing over 26 kg cwt, mak­ing from $225 to a top of $234/head.

A draft of ex­tra-heavy old lambs off sup­ple­men­tary feed topped the sale at $267/head and were dearer than a week ago.

Sheep num­bers con­tinue to in­crease as pro­duc­ers off­load ewes and wethers post weaning and shear­ing.

The yard­ing cov­ered all weights and grades and there were some mod­est price im­prove­ments of $5 to $10/head for heavy sheep.

Some out­stand­ing ex­tra-heavy cross­bred and Merino sheep sold from $160 to a top of $190/head. One north­ern pro­ces­sor dom­i­nated the bid­ding on the heav­ier stock.

Most of the good lines of Merino sheep weigh­ing above 22 kg cwt made from $100 to $138/head. Qual­ity trade and heavy mut­ton was es­ti­mated to cost pro­ces­sors from 470¢ to 520¢/kg cwt.
