Offering a yarding that was considered well short on anticipated quality the top priced line, sold by the Dye family of Kentucky Corowa, went to Philip Julian “Annandayle” Holbrook, NSW.

The line of 198 was July/August 10-drop and September shorn while the feature line of 633 March/April-drop, 1.5yo, offered by W & D Bott “Emu Park” Corren which provided generous freight assistance, opened the sale making $260 selling to repeat buyer Peter Redfern of Moulamein, NSW.

Another pen to make $260 a head was a yard of the Aramat Pastoral ewes (119 BLM-cross), sold by Peter Bailey “Yarragon” Mulwala.

Better grown and presented lines made upwards of $230 while those of lines of lesser quality or genuine one year-olds made $170 to $200.

In spite of a good crowd attending, the market struggled for buyer depth with no down-country representation provided by the southwest or Gippsland.

A small selection of autumn born 11-drop young ewe lambs made $155- $181.
