Well finished lambs dearer
Dwindling numbers of well finished heavy and extra heavy lambs saw the market $3-$5 dearer in Tamworth with a top price of $197 for 52-60kg lambs (pictured) sold by LMK on account Russell Webb. Not surprisingly, re-stocker activity was limited.

Young lambs sold to $168 ($174 last week); older lambs sold to $197 ($201 last week); and hoggets sold to $122 ($92 last week) with top price for DCM.
