Store lambs contributed most of the nearly 900 head present at Matawhero last Friday. Prices for these improved with the heaviest pen sold for $130, and most other lines $97-$125. Prime hoggets and lambs generally made $156-$190 with one stretching to $242. There were only a handful of prime ewes present, but breeding ewes made up the numbers including 123 head of 5-year Romney in very-good condition that made $171. A few 3-4 year Romney ewes made $223.
