Yass Sheep & Lamb Sale
Yarded 20,000 hd
Lamb numbers increased and the quality was mixed. There were nearly 8000 new season lambs penned and the main rise in numbers were in the store and light trade lambs, there were good numbers of trade weights and a small offering of heavy lambs. There were a lot of new season lambs drying off and there was more with seed on the skin. Old lambs were limited and mostly trade weights with the odd heavy lambs, shorn lambs demanded a premium and a small run of mostly light Merinos. All the regular buyers and two extra buyers were operating. The market trend was dearer on the light and trade lambs but eased on the heavy weights as quality slipped.
