Posted by mark3738 On October - 20 - 2019

Buyers from Hawke’s Bay, Manawatu and Taupo paid up to $165 for the first of the new-season’s lambs at Stortford Lodge yesterday.

The southdown-cross terminal lambs were among a line of almost 1400 newly weaned lambs from Waikareao Station, Te Aute. The mixed-sex lambs ranged from $131 to $165.

The rest of the small sheep yarding was mostly hoggets with lambs at foot which were well up at week’s yarding. The best of them made $121 all counted.
