The SELX Prime Lamb & Sheep market for Wednesday, 9th November was the largest yarding to date with 21,094 head yarded. The store lambs were the real highlight for the day with increased competition from regular buyers and several new re-stocker orders.
Lambs to kill were firm to easier, inline with market trends. Heavy lambs topped at $165 with most kill lambs $115 – $140. Store lambs were firm to dearer at $90-$115. Merino lambs topped at $111 ranging from $76-$111.
The mutton market was firm on last week with skin length a big factor on mutton pricing. Topping at $121 for heavy wethers with an inch skin. And most mutton ranging from $82 – $104.
