At Balclutha last Wednesday there was a good yarding of prime lambs, which sold to strong demand with light to mediums making $130-$160. Some new buyers were present for store lambs and these sold up to $120-$135.

Store cattle sold well with interest very high in the two-year section, and Hereford-Friesian heifers, 431kg, returned a solid $3.00/kg. Demand for yearling cattle was not quite as strong, although Friesian bulls, 270kg, managed $800.
