BUYERS: Walter and Bill Raynolds, Braidwood, NSW, bought this pen of 200 Merino ewes for $306 a head at Deniliquin, NSW, last week.

The latest east coast slaughter figures have started the year off sluggishly, with lower than average figures for both lamb and sheep, confirming the tight supply of stock.
