Yarding 8136 Change 3591
Recent rain must have been the motivator for the buyers at Roma Store sale with a robust yarding of 8,136 head, a lift over 3,500 head on last week.
Quality was surprisingly solid with the minority showing any signs the effect of the dry summer, however rain has still been patchy throughout the area.
The market appears to be selling stronger than the previous week and all buyers were present and operating including some solid Southern restockers.
