On a very similar offering compared to yesterday with a limited selection of 17.0u and finer in all types, and a reasonable selection of Best, Good-Best and Good topmakers in 17.5.u-21.5u, the market was 20/30ac cheaper for most types and descriptions. The exception were some selected lots in 16.0u and finer in a very small selection which remained unchanged.
The mix of the buyers creating the most competition is unchanged.

The combined figure of wool withdrawn before the sale and passed in for Flc was 30.4 %.

Best style skirtings finer than 17.5mic and less than 4%vm opened with less competition today and closed 5/10ac cheaper. 18.0 to 20.5mic pieces / bellies closed 10/15ac cheaper for better style and lower vm. Poorer style and higher vm skirtings closed 20/30ac cheaper.

Prems/Lambs in the 42-44HM range closed slightly cheaper in a small offering. 46-52HM types closed fully firm. Odd lots CM/NM 5/10ac dearer.
