January 9. Yarding: 23,399.
The Wednesday sale for lambs yarded an increased number, mainly made up of weights over 18kg. Most were in 2 to 3 score condition, with some pens of 4 scores at the start of most agent’s run. There was an increase in shorn lamb supply, and at times these sold to keener interest from the strong following of processors. Restockers were also quite keen to secure supply. Prices opened up $10/head higher and even more at times, but dropped off late in the sale. Light weight 2 score young lambs to processors and restockers sold from $81 to $115, with light trade weight 3 scores from $95 to $136/head for an estimated average of 650c/kg cwt. Trade weight 3 score young lambs made between $120 and $180/head for an average of 660c/kg cwt. Restockers paid to $145/head. Export heavy weight 3 and 4 score young lambs were from $143 to $216, with the extra heavy weights to $225/head, and all up they averaged 720c/kg cwt. The shorn 2 score light weight lambs made $72 to $90, with restockers going to $120/head. Light trade weight 2 and 3 score shorn lambs sold from $108 to $131, with trade weight 3 scores from $111 to $156/head. Heavy trade and export shorn lambs made $130 to $200/head.

Agents penned a mixed quality offering. There was a good selection for processors, with plenty of ewes of medium and heavy weights and in 3 to 4 score condition. Merino wethers were in good supply, with some pens purchased by a Horsham agent. Prices over the yarding were generally a little dearer than at the combined sheep and lamb sale of last week. Light weight ewes were mainly 1 scores that sold from $37 to $85/head. The medium weight 2 and 3 scores sold between $85 and $124 with full wool Merino's to $137/head. Heavy 3 and 4 score ewes made $104 to $158/head. A run of ewe sheep were mostly between 370c and 440c/kg cwt. The medium weight 2 and 3 score wethers made $103 to $138 with heavy weights from $110 to $146 and a pen of extra heavy 5 scores sold for $154/head. Heavy weight 2 and 3 score rams were from $75 to $114/head.
