Prime lamb prices rose throughout September at Coalgate, where Charollais-cross lambs took top honours last Thursday at $266. Other very-heavy lambs rose to $210-$256, with heavy steady at $190-$209. 
Store lamb volume fell to only 378, with most contained in a single pen of 277 lesser mixed-sex at $95, with the balance $110-$145.
It was a short and sharp affair in the cattle yards where the store pens remain low on stock. Angus, 437kg, were the best of the 2-year steers at $3.25/kg, with Hereford-Friesian, 440kg, next at $2.70/kg. In the yearling pens Angus steers, 202kg, were $3.71/kg with other Angus steers, 248kg, making $3.43/kg.
