Heavy lambs dearer while extra heavies to $181

SELX-sheep-Feb-22

J&J Forbutt, Young topped the market with Mark, Gerrard & Partners selling their XB Lambs for $181.6ph.

Heavy lambs were firm to dearer selling from $141 to $161 and extra heavy lambs topped at $181/head at SELX this week.

Lamb numbers declined for a mostly plain offering. Although light store lambs were back in numbers they still made up a large percentage of the yarding.
Ideal prime trade and heavy lambs were in short supply and there were only a handful of extra heavy weights.
Most lambs were showing the effects of the dry summer conditions. Not all the usual buyers were operating fully in a dearer market.

Restocking lambs 12-16kg sold from $65 to $112/head. Light processing lambs sold from $73 to $113/head. Trade lambs gained $4 to $7 and made from $115 to $140/head to average 610c/kg cwt.

Hoggets reached $160/head. Carcase prices averaged between 570c and 610c/kg cwt.

Mutton numbers also eased in a mixed quality offering. Light sheep made up the majority, but included several pens of heavy crossbred ewes.

Light sheep sold to a dearer trend while medium and heavy sheep sold firm to dearer. Medium weight ewes made from $76 to $125/head. Heavy crossbreds sold to $161/head. Carcase prices ranged from 400c for the medium weights to 360c/kg cwt for heavy sheep on average.
