MARKET REPORT – Melbourne Sale M15

09/10/2019

On another large offering in terms of quantity, but a very poor selection of better type/am wools in 18.5u and finer, the market recovered some of last week’s losses.
18.5u and finer were 20-30ac dearer and 19.0-21.5u 40/50ac dearer. Chinese types were most affected.

Fine merino skirtings with less than 4% vm followed the fleece trend and closed 20/30ac dearer today. Poorer style and higher vm pcs closed fully firm.

Prems/Lambs in the 42-46HM range closed 10/15ac dearer for 17.0 to 19.5mic in reasonable selection today.
48-56HM types closed 10/15ac dearer in the 17.5 to 19.5mic range with odd NM lots 20/30ac dearer.
