CAPE REPORT

19th May 2020

 

The last actual sale was 17th March 2020, the 2 sales in April (7TH & 28th) were cancelled due to the global pandemic. A decision was taken to hold a sale today to keep money flowing to farmers. There were 598 bales offered and 567 bales sold = 95%. An excellent result in very trying circumstances. The European topmakers were largely absent.

Fine kids were firm.

Young goats were 6/8% easier.

Adult was 5% easier.

The next sale will be held 2nd June when 95 Tons will be offered.
