NSW producer Matt Jackson, Rowena Station (pictured far right with sons Sam, 8, Archie, 7, and wife Sara) said they traveled all the way from Broken Hill to Ouyen on Thursday last week to chase strong prices received at the market.OUYEN’s reputation as a key market for the supply of early lambs is being further enhanced by increased numbers being sourced by interstate vendors.

BR&C Ouyen agent Cameron McKay said numbers would normally start to drop this time of year in the lead-up to harvest.

“However Ouyen yard numbers seem to be maintaining because of the interstate attraction,” he said.

“We now have a bigger supply coming in from SA and NSW, which has helped to keep the yarding larger, when normally it would be dropping off.

“The quality is also similar to recent weeks. The recent rain has helped maintain condition instead of going backwards.”

On Thursday last week, nearly 15,000 head was yarded, in comparison to 14,000 the previous sale and 11,000 in the corresponding week a year ago.

Sucker lambs sold to $154, while this time last year, suckers made $130.
