Carcase prices ranged from 540c to 590c/kg on average.

Mutton numbers eased and quality was mixed with more sheep on the lighter side. Heavy weights were still well supplied while light 1 and 2 score sheep better supplied.

Prices gained $3 to $6/head. Heavy crossbreds reached $185 and Merinos $150/head. Merino wethers reached 172.60/head. Medium weights sold between $86 and to $124/head for full wool Merinos.
