Major buyers were Standard Wool SA (3 972 bales), Modiano SA (2 346 bales) and Stucken & Co (1 790 bales).

Average prices for good top-making (MF5), sound, long fleeces (less than 1% seed content) were very erratic across the micron spectrum on offer: 19 microns dropped 2.9% to R113.87/kg; 19.5 microns were 2.6% dearer at R102.58/kg; 20 microns gained 5.7% to R91.66/kg; 20.5 microns were up 0.5% at R85.75/kg; 21 microns were up down by 0.5% to R84.76/kg, 21.5 microns were 2.8% cheaper at R85.83/kg, while 22 microns were 4.6% dearer to close at R89.08/kg.
