ON THE LAND Corowa mar­ket re­port

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Lamb num­bers slipped a lit­tle and the qual­ity was very good across the trade and heavy weight grades which were well fin­ished.

There were mainly trade and heavy weights penned along with a lim­ited sup­ply of plainer lambs through­out and the odd pen of store lambs were of­fered.

All buy­ers were op­er­at­ing and com­pe­ti­tion was solid, re­sult­ing in a firm to dearer mar­ket.

Light lambs to pro­ces­sors av­er­aged from $120 to $135/head.

Medium and heavy trade weight lambs were firm and av­er­aged from 700c to 710c/kg cwt.

Most of the heavy trade weight lambs sold from $165 to $180/head.

Heavy weight lambs were slightly dearer, while ex­tra heavy weights were up to $10/ head stronger and av­er­aged from 705c to 720c/kg cwt.

A run of ex­tra heavy weight lambs sold from $202 to a top of $255/head.

Mut­ton num­bers fell slightly and the qual­ity was mixed through­out.

Medium weight merino ewes av­er­aged $131 or 525c/kg cwt, while heavy weight four scores av­er­aged $162/head. Heavy first cross ewes av­er­aged $167 and topped at $190/head or 505c/kg cwt.
