Mark Brown, Keyneton, was impressed with his son and daughter-in-law Tim and Kelly Brown’s pen of lambs which topped the sale at $150 to ALC.THE change of day for the monthly Mount Pleasant market from Wednesday to Thursday proved beneficial, according to agents, with several extra buyers on hand to bolster bidding.
Landmark Anderson & Fawcett’s Colin Fawcett said a number of buyers or onlookers who had not been to recent sales because of the clash with the weekly Mount Compass sale attended the February market Thursday last week.
“It’s great because it exposes our stock to more competition, particularly the cattle,” he said.
Mr Fawcett said cattle had a good strong sale, in line with most others, with cows in particular selling to good competition.
“Trade steers made to $1000 and the best bulls to $1180,” he said.
Store lambs sold “very well”, he said, with crossbred stores making $60-$94 and Merino stores $70-$80.
Rams made $60-$100 and the best ewes topped at $70.
The yarding of 1150 sheep and lambs and 210 cattle was back on the previous month’s yarding and stock were beginning to show the effects of some hot, dry weather.
