THERE was good competition for older breeding ewes, while younger ewes didn't make the heights expected at the Murray Bridge Merino ewe sale on Friday.
Prices for lambs are reflecting supply and seasonal conditions in different production areas, leading to mixed trends.
We are into the last four weeks of winter and surprisingly numbers have remained high at all selling centres.
Are we seeing a lamb market correction or is this a holding pattern until new season lambs come on board?
Top quality lambs continue to attract solid competition at saleyards right across NSW and the season topping highs show little sign of slowing down.
