Sheep volume was very low at Canterbury Park last Tuesday as recent snow hampered enthusiasm to get stock to sale. Store lambs numbered 35 head and sold from $130 to $161. Prime lambs sold very well with nearly 200 at $245-$286 followed by a similar number of heavy types at $215-$234. Most of the balance earned $161-$211. Ewes were very scarce, and the top pens managed $210-$218 followed by the remainder that ranged from $91 to $178. Read more in your LivestockEye.
