The sheep pens continued to have a good following at Coalgate last Thursday even if prices at the top end of the prime pens didn’t approach the $300 heights of the previous sale. Amongst the store lambs, shorn males remained in high demand but the top tier of $154-$170 also included plenty of scanned dry ewe lambs. The balance mostly earned $110-$149. The top prime lambs earned $202-$228 and the balance mostly made $140-$188. The best ewes sold for $269 while other heavy pens earned $195-$258 and good types $150-$189. Friesian cows, 500-556kg, sold well at $1.79-$1.86/kg. Read more in your LivestockEye.
