The mohair market performed extremely well this season. It is encouraging to note that the total quantity on offer on auction increased by 12.8% to 880.000kg compared to the summer season of 2020. Good price levels also serve as motivation for growers to increase their Angora goat numbers which may result in better production figures should rainfall patterns normalise.

Today’s auction saw mixed results given the large percentage of outsort qualities on offer. Some excellent individual clips continued to attract premium prices.
