Lamb numbers improved and the quality was again mixed. There were lambs in short wool that present very well along side longer woolled lambs that were dry and lacking some cover. Trade and heavy lambs made up the bulk with a small run of light store lambs. Short skinned lambs attracted the most attention from buyers. The market sold to a cheaper trend.

Light restocking lambs were $6 to $9/head dearer with restockers after longer skinned lambs up to 22kg. Medium and heavy trade lambs were $3 dearer, Heavy lambs 22 to 26kg were back $8 to $10 and extra heavy lambs lost $6.

Mutton numbers fell and the quality varied from very light Merino ewes to a limited supply of heavy crossbreds. Prices were dearer generally $5 to $6/head stronger.
