Ewe fair at Matawhero

EWE BEAUDIES: A total yarding of around 7000 ewes greeted buyers at the Matawhero saleyards this morning. The line-up is down on last year’s 8500 head (pictured), and it remains to be seen how the value goes today. The top price paid last year for two-tooths was $173 for some Coopworths with FE tolerance from Wairoa, with $85-$100 the price range for other good sheep. Picture by Liam Clayton

THE January ewe fair got under way at 10am and it was anticipated it would take around two-and-a-half hours to clear the catelogue.
