New lamb price record set at Wagga Wagga | Video

A new Australian record for lamb prices has been set at Wagga Wagga just over a week after the previous mark was set.

A pen of 168, 10 month old Tumbarumba lambs sold for $276.20.

MLA livestock market reporter Leann Dax said  the price significantly exceeded the $260 paid for a pen of extra heavy lambs at Forbes, last week.

Ms Dax said the lambs were estimated to weigh 36kilograms, with an $11 skin value.

She said the yarding was drawn from the Riverina, through to Tumut, Temora and West Wyalong.

The pen was sold to Southern Meats, Goulburn.
