Crossbred lambs to $268
A GOOD line up of lambs were on offer at the Murray Bridge prime sheep market on Monday.
Nutrien Ag Solutions Murray Bridge's Kevin Keller says sales at Murray Bridge continue to be reasonably strong with good support from buyers.
"They sold a little bit better than I thought as the lamb job has come off just a little bit but they did sell very well," he said.
"For the season we have had the lambs have presented well."
Elders Murray Bridge's Scott Eichler said the store lamb job has been very strong again but that yarding was back on expectation.
"The quality of stock was very good from pen one, all the way through to the end of the market," he said.
Thomas Foods International supported the sale securing the six-highest priced pens at the market.
