Prices for composite ewes, aged three and four years, scanned in lamb, ranged from $88 to $120 a head, while older age composite ewes, '02/'03-drop, also scanned in lamb, made $84-$94.50.
A line of rising three- and four-year-old Merryville-blood Merino ewes, depastured to Poll Dorset rams, made $49- $59.50.
