The total listing eased this week with 54,387 offered, dropping 10,000 from last week. The bulk of this came out of NSW with 38,600 offered. The largest category offering was comprised of Merino ewes and ewe lambs to total 18,000 head and of this 8,000 came out of NSW. The market is still firm as 41,000 head sold and 75pc clearance was achieved across all sales (including post-sale negotiations). Support for the Northern states came through strong competition from the South as 11,300 head will head to SA and VIC out of QLD and NSW.


Merino ewe lamb prices ranged from $90 to $257 to average $142, the top line being 49kg ewes from Tintinara, VIC. A line of ewe lambs from Ifracombe, QLD, will travel 2,000km down to Kapunda, SA.

The prices eased back a bit for older Merino breeders aged 4 to 6 years old as they ranged from $50 to $161 to average $93. The highlight was a line of 4 year old 64kg ewes from Narrandera, NSW. These ewes are off shears and NSM.

Merino wether and wether lamb numbers steadied to 11,000 this week. The majority offered were Merino wether lambs in the National Lamb sale, these averaged $82 with prices ranging from $35 to $106. The top price was secured by Woodpark blood wethers A/c ‘J & J Hackett’, Goodnight, NSW, April/May 18’ drop, weighing 31kg with a 1.5” skin. Merino wethers were in lesser supply, prices ranged from $59 to $112.50 to average $80. They were topped by 4.5 year old heavy export wethers weighing 64kg with a 0.5” skin, with a dressed value of 408c/kg.

First cross ewes had an offering of 7,000 this week with an even split between ewe lambs and older proven breeders. The ewe lambs averaged $176 and ranged from $95.50 to $239, topped by a line of 58kg, 11 to 12 month old ewes from Narromine, NSW. The older breeders averaged $146 and ranged from $80 to $203.

The wool market opened back up this week after the three week break with a large offering of almost 50,000 bales across all three selling centres. After a slow start on the first day of sales the market picked up and the week closed out with the AWEX EMI increasing 9ac to finish at 1990ac and a passed in rate of 4.7%. Online buying also strengthened with the kick off of sales this week with 173 bales sold. Top prices for 17µ and 18µ micron fleece wool sold up to 1805c and 1665c greasy, or 2557c and 2406c dry. While 19µ micron fleece wool topped at 1632c greasy or 2273c dry and 21µ micron fleece wool topped at 1511c greasy or 2064c dry. While the cross bred fleece wool was topped by a 29µ micron fleece at 489c greasy or 672c dry. With a fall in offerings next week to 37,000 bales and seasonal conditions continuing to affect supply in the foreseeable future it is expected that the auctions are to see the same strong competition from the start of auction.
