Lamb off to a good start

THE first lamb sale of the year held at the Koonwarra VLE saleyards on January 7 went well, with around 4500 lambs and about 600 sheep yarded.
James Kyle from SEJ said the lamb market was very strong on the day.
“The best of them went for about $148 and it looked like most of the lambs made between $100 and $130,” he said.
“It’s opened up very strong. I would say all the markets have opened up quite strong.”
Mr Kyle said many farmers now have lambs that have reached the stage where they have to be sold.
“It was a strong buying field, and there were even a couple of extra buyers there. I think it was because there had been no markets for three weeks so stock numbers are low,” he said.
Landmark agent Eddie Hams said the lamb market opened up strong in both Koonwarra on Wednesday, January 7 and Thorpdale on Friday, January 9.
“Lambs could strengthen a little bit I think. They always do,” he said.
