Demand lifted for prime sheep which pushed values upwards at Balclutha last Wednesday. The top end of prime lambs lifted $10 to $160-$180 with light to medium types at $140-$150. A full yarding of store lambs sold well with the top end up $15 to $130-$150, medium $110-$120 and light $90. Store cattle were met by a strong buying bench and values improved significantly compared to a month ago. R2 beef steers, 400kg, achieved $2.80/kg and heifers $2.60-$2.70/kg.
