Corowa mar­ket held on Mon­day, Novem­ber 21 with 9,800 lambs yarded an in­crease of 2,000 from pre­vi­ous week and 3,000 sheep, an in­crease of 700 from the pre­vi­ous mar­ket.

Lamb num­bers and qual­ity lifted this week; all buy­ers were present but not op­er­at­ing fully in a strong mar­ket.

Do­mes­tic pro­ces­sors were keen to source the well fin­ished trade lambs which helped to even out prices in a fluc­tu­at­ing mar­ket.

New sea­son trade lambs were firm to $3/ head dearer.

Light trade weight lambs sold from $111 to $130, medium trade made from $120 to $134 and the heavy trade lambs made from $130 to $145/head to av­er­age 561c/kg.

Heavy lambs sold from $142 to $161 and the ex­tra heavy lambs sold from $151 to $174/ head.

Most re­stocker lambs sold from $97 to $110/ head. Mut­ton num­bers in­creased slightly. It was a mixed qual­ity of­fer­ing of mut­ton with solid bid­ding lift­ing the mar­ket by $10 to $20/head.

Heavy weight cross­bred ewes made to $131, merino ewes sold to $134, wethers sold to $120 and hoggets made to $125/head.
