Some very heavy prime sheep were the main talking point of Tuesday’s Canterbury Park sale as a third of the prime lambs traded at $200-$283 and most of the balance made $136-$195. The best ewes earned $330 while other very heavy pens returned $246-$298 and heavy $180-$200. Much of the ewes were medium-good condition and fetched $108-$140, which included a pen that held over 120-head. A few heavier pens of store lambs fetched $132-$152 while $106-$130 covered most medium lines. Read more in your LivestockEye.
