According to all reports season prices dipped at this sheep sale by around $20.00 per head across most categories, from the week before. Mainly due to local limited rain.
Whilst not a boomer sale, prices managed to just hold on.
One of the agents was quoted as saying that he “was bracing for the worst before the sale but was pleasantly surprised with the result”.
