Inter-Island comparison of wool types do not always easily line up, however in general terms compared to 17th May sale, Fine Crossbred Fleece and Shears were 2 to 4 percent firmer. Coarse Crossbred Full Fleece were 2 to 4.5 percent stronger. Coarse Shears were strongly contested generally lifting 5 to 10 percent.

First Lambs were up to 2 percent dearer. Long Oddments remained firm with shorter types up to 2 percent stronger. Wider spread competition with China, India, Western Europe and Australasia dominating, supported by United Kingdom and the Middle East.
