Short snow flurries couldn’t dampen store lamb prices at Temuka last Monday and the majority earned $150-$169 followed by most of the balance at $120-$149. Nearly half of the prime lambs fetched $200-$215 with the rest evenly spread from $170-$199. Ewes were also a hot item and 150 of the very heavy pens earned $200-$292. The remainder were mostly medium types that sold from $120 to $196. The cattle section was small and most were either Friesian or Hereford cows that made $1.88-$1.99/kg.
