MARKET REPORT – Melbourne Sale M09

29/08/2019

On a very small selection of mainly lower style types in 17.0u and finer, and a mostly large selection of Good TM in 17.0u-21.5u Chinese types the market was cheaper again for all types and descriptions. Lower style and poorer spec types under most pressure with selected lots 120/150ac cheaper. A very limited selection of good/best topmaking finer microns closed 40/50ac cheaper in the 17.0 to 18.5mic range.

Fine merino skirtings with less than 3% vm continued to drift lower and closed 40/50ac cheaper. Poorer style and higher vm pcs closed 80/100ac cheaper again with limited competition from the topmaker’s.

Prems/Lambs in the 42-46HM range closed generally 20/30ac cheaper for 17.5 to 19.5mic in a very small selection.
48-56HM types closed 30/40ac cheaper in the 18.0 to 19.5mic range except nm lots are unchanged.
