PAULA Thompson talks through this week's market trends.
THERE were 5662 lambs and 1006 mutton sold at Ouyen, Vic, on Thursday last week, for a total yarding of 6668.
With a lack of feed availability for livestock it was a surprising market at Mount Pleasant last week, with strong demand from buyers and a quality lineup from vendors.
AT the Dublin sheep and lamb sale on Tuesday, I received a few comments asking when the rain was likely to arrive, so farmers could get on with getting a bit of feed in the ground.
THERE were more than twice the amount of cattle yarded than was originally advertised at the store cattle sale in Naracoorte on Thursday last week.
