Mr Dawson advises when compared to the last North Island sale on 28th May when a comparable selection was offered prices are generally firm to 2.5 percent dearer, however, when compared to the South Island sale on 4th June;
Fine Crossbred Shears ranged from firm to 4 percent easier.
Coarse Crossbred Full Fleece were 1 to 3 percent cheaper, longer shears 3 to 6 percent lower and short shears 1 to 3 percent cheaper.
First Lambs Fleece were firm to 3.5 percent easier.
Short Oddments ranged from 1 to 5 percent cheaper.
Strong competition with China principal supported by Australasia, Western Europe, Middle East and India.
Sale on 18th June has been cancelled due to insufficient wool available, with the next sale on 25th June comprising approximately 6,150 bales from the South Island and 10,800 bales from the North Island.
