Melbourne Market Report M06 – 7th August 2019

MARKET REPORT – Melbourne Sale M06

7/08/2019

The first sale of the new season opened with limited support from the trade with most micron categories suffering losses. In a mainly good / average topmaking selection of 17.5 to 21.0mic today the only area that remained relatively well supported was the 17.5 to 18.5 good/best style wools with above 45NKT. Poorer style and lower yielding types all heavily discounted with losses of 40/50ac. 19.5 to 21.5mic good/best style also closed 35/45ac cheaper with poorer style and topmaking types 60/70ac cheaper.

Better style Merino skirtings with less than 3% vm closed 25/35ac cheaper today with less competition from the topmakers. Poorer style and lower yielding wools carrying above 5%vm closed 40/50ac cheaper.

Prems and shorter lamb types in the 42-46HM range closed with finer microns 10/15ac cheaper and 19.0mic & coarser closed generally unchanged. Longer lambs/prems in the 48-56HM range closed generally unchanged across all microns in a limited selection.
