Again today a considerable part of the offering has been withdrawn before the sale. This left the market with a poor selection of mainly lower style types in 16.5u and finer, and a very average selection of Best/Good and Good TM in 17.0u-21.5u.
Better types/am’s started of cheaper but lots with favorable am’s gained some ground and ended up slightly dearer at the end of the sale.
Chinese types in 17.5u-21u came under pressure and were 10/20ac dearer. Chinese types in 17.0u and finer were irregular or cheaper.

Fine merino skirtings with less than 3% vm attracted good competition today with selected lots 20/30ac dearer by close of selling. Poorer style and higher vm pcs closed in sellers favour but with improved interest from Chinese indent buyers.

Prems/Lambs in the 42-46HM range closed generally 15/20ac cheaper for 17.5 to 19.5mic in a very small selection.
48-56HM types closed 10/15ac cheaper in the 18.0 to 19.5mic range except NM lots are unchanged.
