Corowa Market Report

By Corowa Free Press

Corowa’s Market on Monday yielded better results to the previous week with 14,905 yarded with an overall increase of 1,025.

There was a picking of sheep and lambs with weight which helped to keep a floor in some categories of the market. 

Restockers were again keen to participate on store lambs and store type sheep with less feedlot presence today. Not all the regular field of processors were present, however, joined by northern export processors helping to keep a firm to market where quality lines were available. 

Sheep and lambs lacking weight sold to weaker trends.

Light and medium trade lambs, 18-22kg, sold to the regular supermarket competition in a fluctuating market, selling from $138 to $168/head.

Strong competition resulted in the heavy trade lambs, 22-24kg, gaining $3, making from $169 to $183/head, to average 729c/kg cwt. 

Again, good competition on the heavy lambs saw firm results selling from $180 to $192/head. Over 26kg woolly export types were limited, selling from $180 to $192/head. Most of the new season export lambs are now being offered shorn with the over 30kg lambs making from $228 to $239/head, selling from 713c to 724c/kg cwt. 

The good offering of new season light lambs suiting the processors eased up to $6 making from $105 to $138/head. Restockers paid from 435 to $121/head in a softer market for light lambs under 16kg.

A mixed selection of heavy and trade weight mutton was available with buyers operating in a firm market for heavy types and up to $9/head softer on the lighter lines. Well finished heavy 4 score cross bred ewes making from $148 to $200/head to average 589/kg cwt. 

The Merino 4 score ewes reached $200/head and the 2 and 3 score ewes sold from $92 to $138/head. Heavy wethers sold from $146 to $192/head.
