The Ewe Fair on Wednesday produced a strong start to the sales year at the Matawhero saleyards.

All 7347 mums on offer sold and for good prices.

The top dollar was paid for a line of two-tooth Romneys from the Hains at Pehiri, at $266 a head, with some five-year-old Romneys from Waitangi Terraces at Kanakanaia top of the pops in that age bracket at $234.

There was plenty of buyer interest in a very good yarding of quality stock.
