Almost 10,000 1st X Ewes went under the hammer at SELX today at the first ever Special Sheep sale. Foundation Agents across the board were happy with the turnout, with very strong competition shown due to the good season being had across the region. For this time of year strong prices were achieved and shows great promise as we move into 2017.
Buyers from the Riverina, Southern Highlands, South West Slopes, Tablelands and Monaro regions were all present, with huge support particularly coming out of Goulburn with both buyers and vendors.
As a total the sale top was $280ph, with an average of $235ph. Elders achieved the top price with 220 1st X Ewes sold at $280ph on behalf of RJ Hain, Cooma. Shorn lambs ranged in price from $110-$178 and unshorn lambs ranged in price from $86-138.
