Big consignments from the West Coast boosted store lamb throughput to record levels at Coalgate last Tuesday. They were subjected to good competition and half the yarding sold from $150-$164 including plenty of males and ewe while second cuts managed $130-$147. Competition was calmer for longer term lambs and most sold for $80 to $138. Prime lambs were still well sought after at a level of $160-$188 for the majority but a small number pushed to $229. The best ewe managed $318 and nearly a third of the mixed-age pens sold above $200 with only small pockets of lesser quality lines trading below $142. Read more in your LivestockEye.
