Full article - Beef Central

At the Tamworth saleyards on Monday, the agents yarded 900 lambs, 960 fewer than last week, and 420 sheep, 1580 less.

The NLRS said lamb quality was fair to good, with a reasonable supply of well-finished lambs along with some good quality restocker lambs.

Demand was strong from the usual buyers throughout the lamb sale. Agents reported a firm to dearer market trend across most categories.

Restockers paid from $170-$200 for good quality crossbred lambs. Local trade lambs made from $170-$268 and export processors paid $235-$305.

Prices changed little for the sheep, with processors paying from $110-$250. Restockers were also active and paid from $123-$250. Please note sale data could not be obtained for this report.
