Monaro Merino Breeders Association sale

Cooma Associated Agents conducted the Monaro Merino Breeders Association sale on February 22 at the Cooma sale yards.

It was the second special store sale for the year, once again conducted on a Friday, with a yarding of approximately 7,000 sheep consisting of 1.5 year old Merino ewes, 1.5 years old Merino wethers, 1st x ewes and 5.5 and 6.5 year old Merino ewes.

It was a good quality yarding of breeder sheep with only 1 pen of wethers up for sale this time which realised $51/head.

There was a larger selection of 1st x ewes up for competition from lambs to 5.5 year olds and good older Merino ewes from 5.5 to 6.5 years old. With some good rainfall around the Southern Tablelands over the past 2 weeks, there was a little more competition from the restockers than the previous sale.
