Inverell Market Report 21st June 2016

Local sales : Tomlinson Holdings sold steers 315 kg 352.2 c/kg @$1109.
Sheep: There were 2,700 sheep and lambs penned and with wet conditions having an effect on the overall yarding, quality was mixed along with some notable drafts of well finished supplementary fed lambs on offer to the usual field of buyers that attended. The market varied overall, with trade lambs selling $4 to $5 dearer, and heavy categories $10/head cheaper. The small yarding of mutton consisted of some well finished heavy and medium weight sheep, along with some light plain drafts. The market saw little change week-on-week for most of the sheep on offer.
