Price hit at weekly sheep sale

PRICES at yesterday's weekly Matawhero sheep sale took a hit due to the worsening water and grass availability situation around the region, and the yarding was very small too.

There were just 322 sheep entered and all were sold.

Best price of $115 was paid for one prime 6-tooth merino wether.

The store ewes and lambs were lacking condition and sold down to $41.

Best prices: prime lambs: Grants Panel Shop, 8, $113, 7, $93; T Roger Holden, 5, $105, 2, $84; Merino lambs, 9, $110, 3, $90.

Store ram lambs: 42, $51; store ewe lambs: 102, $58; store mixed-sex lambs, 32, $71, 7, $41.

Store ewes: Hakurenga Inc (Waipiro Bay), 67, $60, 28, $41; G Neilson, 9, $41.
