New Zealand Wool Services International Limited’s C.E.O, Mr John Dawson reports that a wider range of better styled

The weighted indicator for the main trading currencies compared to last week was up 1 percent.
Compared to last week’s less stylish North Island selection:

crossbred fleece were firm with average styles increasing 2 to 4%.
Longer coarse shears were 1 to 3 percent dearer with shorter shears 2 to 4 percent stronger.
Fine first lambs ranged from 3 to 5 percent dearer with coarser lambs showing good support increasing by 4 to 6%.
Next sale on 25 th May comprises approximately 7,300 bales from the North Island.
