Wool Market Upchanged

NZ Wool Services International Limited’s Marketing Executive, Mr Paul Steel reports a slightly stronger New Zealand dollar overall and targeted buying saw the South Island offering of 9,745 bales generally firm to slightly easier.

The weighted currency indicator compared to last sale on 20th March was up 0.58 percent. Exporters concentrated on specific buying orders resulting in a 77 percent clearance with growers requiring higher prices for the balance.

Average style coarse fleece were firm to 2 percent firmer with poor styles generally firm.

Coarse Crossbred Shears were firm to 3 percent cheaper with the shorter types easing the most, however local prices are still higher than last week’s North Island levels.

Longer First Lambs Fleece remained firm with 2 to 4 inch lines up to 1 percent dearer and shorter types firm to 1 percent easier.

Long Oddments were firm with good colour short oddments lifting up to 5 percent and poor style remaining firm.
