This week’s South Island offering compared to last week’s North Island sale was generally firm to 4 percent easier. Longer Fine Crossbred Shears were firm to 3 percent softer with the shorter types resisting the trends and firming up to 4 percent.

Coarse Crossbred Fleece was also firm to 4 percent down. Coarse Shears 2/4 and longer ranged from 2 to 5 percent easier with the shorter types 1.5 percent dearer. First Lambs were 2 to 5 percent down.

Coarse Oddments were 3 to 4 percent cheaper. When compared to the previous South Island offering on 7th June, levels range from firm to 6 percent cheaper, however the price wool is trading at internationally is relative to the North Island market movement and currency impact.
