Market firms off the back of smaller sheep yarding

THE sheep market has improved off the back of a small yarding at the Warwick Saleyards yesterday.

Warwick Selling Agents yarded 1571 lambs and hoggets, and 572 sheep at the weekly sale.

Top lambs account, GP and JA Cross of Hebel, sold for $164.
