AFTER the post Christmas slump in lamb sales with most opting for chicken and pork over the holiday period, the new year has bought about a fresh lot of lambs and prices to go with it. 

As sheep markets prepare to get back into the weekly grind, many yards have witnessed an increase in heavyweights coming through earlier. 

The indicator for lamb was 527c/kg Tuesday night. 

Landmark Langlands Hanlon owner Geoff Rice, Forbes, said although the lamb market had surrendered before Christmas, it had since risen along with the cattle market.

WHEN Wilgunya Merino Stud principal Max Wilson saw the first hammer fall at $2400 for their annual ram sale today, he thought “you bloody beauty!”

The winning bidder was Walgett’s David Harthog.

His purchase of the auction opener toppled last year’s highest price by $250 to plant a firm smile on the Dirranbandi stud principal’s face for the remaining 79 single-pen auction rams as they all cleared.

“She starts strong and you’ll finish strong,” Mr Wilson later commented.

He was right.
