Today’s auction began firm on the levels of the previous sale last with stronger Kids 27/8mic slightly dearer.

As the sale progressed the market across the board strengthened to close more expensive for all qualities particularly on the Fine Kid types. Any Adult hair which was previously taken in was sold on the auction resulting in a good clearance figure for the whole sale.

Next sale will be held in 21st May which will be the penultimate sale of this season.
