No Matawhero sheep sale

File picture

The weekly Friday sheep sale at Matawhero last week was cancelled on Thursday due to a lack of sheep numbers.

“Not enough sheep were going to be brought forward for it to go ahead,” an agent said.

“Hill country farmers have had a good season, and already processed a lot of their lambs.... and there’s still enough tucker out there for the rest of them.”

Depending on stock numbers the weekly sale should return on Friday.
