The sales clearance of the final auction of the summer season was lower due to a high percentage of defective/ seedy lots on offer and the brokers having firm reserves on certain adult and young goat lots. The smaller quantity of super kid on offer continued to attract keen interest.

In comparison with the previous sale price movements were as follows:
Kids                     firm/ unchanged
Young goats         – 2%
Adult                    unchanged

The first Cape auction for the winter season will take place on the 18th August with approximately 80.000kg on offer.
