Assessor Comments Offering the middle draft of mid August-September drop composite wether lambs. These lambs were steadily inducted to grain before being placed onto a full ration and have had grain in their diet for 10 weeks now. They are doing well being majority 2-3 scores with the lead at kill weights currently. These lambs will top up to trade weights quickly either on a feed ration or on crop/pasture. A large tail has been retained and you can be assured these lambs are on the do and will continue to gain weight. Annual sale of wether lambs only being sold due to wet conditions and cropping priorities. A neat four decks of lambs with shape and a short skin perfect for domestic kill markets.
