An offering of about 15,000 lambs made for a long day at Stortford Lodge yesterday.

The yarding was so big that smaller pens reserved for Monday's prime sale were brought into use.

The offering was mostly of good quality but prices were about $10 easier than last week, which in turn was $10 or $12 up on the week before.

A line of good five-year-old ewes from Tangihau Station, Rere, sold well at $185 and $182.

The cattle yarding of about 500 head, was made up of a good number of R1 animals. Prices were also slightly down on last week's sale.

Buyers were from Hawke's Bay, Waikato, Manawatu and Bay of Plenty.

PRIME SALE

A good quality yarding of cattle returned better prices at Monday's sale.

Most of the yarding of 71 head comprised angus oxen and heifers. The best of the oxen, weighing at 586kg, made $2.80/head.

In the sheep pens many of the scanned-dry ewes were showing signs of the prolonged drought.

A big offering of almost 700 lambs met good demand. Most of them were good quality and showing no signs of drought.
