Prices at today’s North Island sale were slightly cheaper across most type with the exception of good colour fleece and shears which were virtually unchanged compared to our sale last week. Competition was again well spread with 95% of the offering sold. The New Zealand exporters report they are still able to sell wool but these are generally smaller volumes on subdued enquiry.
