Home' On The Land : February 17th 2011 Contents 8 -- ON THE LAND THURSDAY, February 17, 2011
DEMAND was much stronger,
following on from other centres
earlier in the week, for both sheep
and lambs in the first combined
sale for this season at this selling
A near full field of buyers at-
tended the sale though not all
operated at the dearer rates, ac-
cording to the National Livestock
Quality was more mixed across
the whole offering and buyers
only discounted the very poor
Restockers were again quite
active and also paid higher rates,
especially for the very light weight
The few woolly lamb sales were
$5 to $10 dearer, but shorn lambs
were closer to $15/head higher
and made up the bulk of the lamb
The light trade weight 2 and 3
score shorn lambs sold from $122 to
$134, while restocking light weights
were from $119 to $136, odd trade
weight to $145/head.
The 3 score trade weight lambs
to processors made $131 to $168/
head and averaged 630c/kg cwt.
Heavy 4 score lambs were from
$155 to $195 with heavy weight
pens at $194 and $206 and one
pen made $220/head. The heavy
lambs averaged 645c with most
processing lambs from 590c to
Heavy 3 to 5 score hoggets made
$125 to $145/head. The sheep
market sold mainly $3 to $8/head
higher with a run of sheep mostly
from 425c to 485c/kg cwt, wethers
having the highest rates aided by
some restocker competition.
Light weight 1 and 2 score sheep
sold from $66 to $118, medium
weight 2 and 3 scores between
$105 and $141/head.
Heavy and extra heavy 3, 4 and
5 score sheep made $120 to $160
with a pen to a restocker at $164.60/
Rams sold at similar rates to
their very strong rise of last week
to be from $80 to $120/head.
