MARKET REPORT – Melbourne Sale M51

20/06/2019

On another small selling day with a poor selection of mainly lower types in 16.5u and finer, and a reasonable selection of good/best style in 17.5 to 21.5u the market seemed to have found a level with most better types/am ‘s unchanged, tending dearer.
Lower types with poor yields and low am’s and yield’s however continue to be neglected and are again cheaper.

Fine Merino skirtings with less than 3%vm closed firm / unchanged in a very small selection today. Poorer style and lower yielding wools carrying above 5%vm closed only slightly cheaper with better competition from the top-makers.

Prems and shorter lamb types in the 42-46HM range closed with finer microns 10/15ac cheaper and 19.0mic & coarser 15/20ac cheaper. Longer lambs/prems in the 48-56HM range closed with finer microns 5/10ac cheaper & 19.0 to 20.0mic 10/15ac cheaper in a very small selection.
