Mixed Fortunes At Wool Auction
New Zealand Wool Services International Limited’s General Manager, Mr John Dawson reports that the South Island auction offering 10,122 bales this week received varied support despite a weaker New Zealand dollar compared to the last sale on 10th July.
The weighted currency indicator was down 1.11 percent with 81 percent of the offering being sold.
Steady demand from China underpinned the Fine Crossbred sector, however most carpet wool types eased as contracts in this area have been harder to conclude recently.
Mr Dawson advises that the fine end of the Mid Micron fleece were strongly supported lifting 5 to 7 percent with the 27 to 30.5 microns weakening 1.5 to 4 percent.
Fine Crossbred Fleece and Shears were in good demand, lifting 1 to 2 percent.
Coarse Crossbred Fleece, good and average styles were firm to 2 percent cheaper with poor styles firm.
Longer coarse shears were 1 to 2 percent easier with shorter types firm to 3 percent dearer.
First Lambs were generally unchanged. Long Oddments were firm with short oddments firm to 2 percent dearer.
Limited competition with China, Australasia and the Middle East principals, supported by Western Europe, India and the United Kingdom.
Next sale on 24th July comprises approximately 8,130 bales from the North Island.
