Best lambs for 2017

Monday 5th June 2017

Prime lambs hit a new high at Tamworth this week with a pen of July drop, February shorn lambs making $231, smashing a record price of $220 that was set just weeks ago.   The outstanding quality heavy lambs were sold by IML on account Tarakan, Cobbadah and, remarkably, vendor Stewart Steiger (pictured left with contract shearers, Benji Robinson and Jock Mallise) says that they were the tail of his lambs.  Stewart says that he’s received more than $200 for his lambs before, but never this much and Ian Morgan says that Tarakan have an excellent reputation, having held the record price for lambs at the old Tamworth saleyards for many years.

The top price was smashed with these heavy lambs (pictured right) sold by Chris Paterson on account Wendouree Grazing, Walcha making $220. Vendor, Evan Dunn says it's the best price he's ever had for his lambs. Congratulations to the Dunn family on a great job.
