The market toppers, although priced $90 a head less than the month earlier sale, were considering "good-selling" among a yarding oozing quality.

The pen of 15-drop young ewes, which has 125pc of White Suffolk lambs at foot, were the property of Ken Hinckley, Ky Pastoral Warracknabeal.

The yard of 134 was snapped up by Elders Birchip, while a second pen of Ky Pastoral 15-drop young ewes, with Black Suffolk lambs at foot, made $344 and was sold to Elders Hamilton.

The Elders Wycheproof yarding of 13,000 store sheep met a consistent, steady but slightly easier market in its October sale on Friday

Several annual drafts of maiden First-cross young ewes met a consistent market pitched slightly below the trading levels of the month easier sale.

These mostly made from $240, to $268 on two occasions with buyers from Bendigo, Ballarat, Yarrawonga, Ararat and Hamilton all snaring a piece of the action.

The demand for young Merino ewes was better and more consistent than expected. These generally made $170 to a high of $208 a head also on two occasions, while older ewes met with steady demand registering sales between $125 and $194 a head.

A small selection of wether lambs was offered both in shorn and unshorn condition. These made $87 to $105 a head with restockers claiming all that were offered.
