There was a re­duc­tion in both the sheep and lamb pen­nings. The qual­ity and con­di­tion of the lambs was mixed, rang­ing from very light weight store lambs to some ex­cel­lent heavy and ex­tra heavy weights. This vari­a­tion high­lighted just how much of a dis­par­ity in sea­sonal con­di­tions there is over the draw­ing area. De­mand re­mained high, and re­stock­ers were ac­tive on a large line of young lambs, lighter in con­di­tion.
