There was record prices for prime lambs at Canterbury Park last Tuesday. Most of the yarding was made up of heavier lambs and good competition meant several pens sold for up to $260. Heavier store lambs sold particularly well at $160-$169, while lighter types had less demand.
Some well-finished cattle were on offer in the prime pens, and these were rewarded with good prices. The majority of the steers were traditional types and better-yielding dairy-beef which earned $3.10-$3.20/kg. Prime heifers also sold well, with exotic, 500-575kg, earning $3.19-$3.23/kg.
