$10 lift on prices from the previous mar-
Most lambs were between four and six
months old and made either trade or export
Landmark Murray Bridge agent Kevin Keller
said it was a good quality yarding. "It will be
interesting to see if the prices hold at the next
sale, though," he said.
The offering comprised 6000 new-season
lambs supplied from the Mallee and Murray
Bridge, Callington, and Mannum districts.
Elders Murray Bridge's Corey Friebel said
there was good competition from T&R
Pastoral, Swift, Safeway, Holco, Austral Meats
and local butchers.
"There were a lot of onlookers, but a lot of
buyers as well -- that
helped push the
prices up," he said.
