Merino Ewe Lambs sell for $330/head
Due to surplus to requirements, we offered 600 commercial Merino ewe lambs in the spring off-shears season and received $330/head. We are really happy with this result. Demand is strong for lambs with 45-50mm staple length wool at 10-12 months old. We were able to meet the buyer’s requirements for a win-win outcome for all.
These sheep would normally be sold in the spring but this was a good opportunity to lighten off stock numbers at our Hallett properties due to the previous two dry seasons leaving us with little ground cover in the autumn.
We thank Ben Finch from Elders for facilitating the sale.
