Lamb num­bers re­mained steady and qual­ity was slightly plainer as dry con­di­tions con­tinue to im­pact pre­sen­ta­tion. De­mand was slightly eas­ier with the south­ern mar­kets in full swing, not all the usual buy­ing group at­tended and not all ma­jor do­mes­tic or ex­port pro­ces­sors op­er­ated fully. Fur­ther rain pre­dicted in the sup­ply area con­tin­ues to give buy­ers con­fi­dence with re­stock­ing lambs re­main­ing firm sell­ing be­tween $74 and $115/head with lambs go­ing to the feed sell­ing for $132/head. Medium to heavy trades were firm sell­ing be­tween $122 to $162/head mak­ing 689c/kg cwt. Shorn lambs to the trade lifted $4 av­er­ag­ing from $141 to $176/head with the heav­ier lambs mak­ing $166 to $192/head.

Heavy and ex­tra heavy ex­port lambs sold be­tween $182 to $206/head. It was a mixed qual­ity of­fer­ing of mut­ton with all weights and grades rep­re­sented. Heavy cross bred ewes sold be­tween $114 to $144/head lift­ing $6 to av­er­age 453/kg cwt. Heavy 4 score merino ewes made $141/head. The bulk of the trade sheep re­mained firm sell­ing be­tween $70 to $138/head.
