Heavy Lambs were considerably dearer $183 to $188/head and Lambs more than 30kgs cwt sold to $210/head. Hogget’s $45 to $78/head. Young, crossbred Ewes to the paddock $74/head and young Merino Wethers sold for $100/head. Ewes were cheaper for all categories. Light weights to $14/head with medium Ewes $44 to $62/head.
