Prices at Friday's Mount Gambier store market eased slightly from the lofty heights of last month
An increased yarding of sheep and lambs were met with fierce buyer competition at the Mount Pleasant cattle and sheep market on Thursday, with crossbred lambs topping at $198.
DESPITE prices being lower than usual at the third Murray Bridge prime lamb sale for the year on Monday, the quality of lambs on offer was on par with the offering of lambs at the market's previous sales.
In British supermarkets there seems to be a trend toward a staffed, fresh-meat counter where they will cut to your requirements.
Steers at the Mount Gambier combined agents' store sale last Friday were generally cheaper than the barnstorming July sale, which most agents put down to the lesser quality offering.
