The medium and heavy trade lambs were $5 to $8 dearer ranging from $132 to $158/head averaging 670c/kg at SELX Yass last week.
Quality was fair to good with only a small run of well-finished trade weights offered. Heavy lambs were limited and there were plenty of secondary lambs, which attracted strong competition from re-stockers.
All the usual buyers operated in a dearer market.
Restocking lambs sold from $90 to $151/head.
