A yarding of more than 13,000 lambs sold on a hot market at Stortford Lodge on Wednesday.

The big number of outside buyers reinforced the Hawke's Bay buyers on hand, which was reflected in strong prices. Most of the male lambs were sold to Waikato and Bay of Plenty buyers.

Prices were $10 to $15 up on earlier weeks.

A small yarding of about 300 cattle also sold better than the past three weeks. Buyers were from Hawke's Bay, Taihape, Waikato, Rotorua, Gisborne, Manawatu, Gisborne and Wairarapa.

PRIME SALE

A big yarding of 120 head of mostly angus cattle sold on a solid market at Monday's sale. The best of the ewes also sold well but prime lambs were the feature of the day.
