New Zealand Wool Services International Limited’s C.E.O, Mr John Dawson reports that a weaker New Zealand dollar and steady off shore interest over the past weeks saw most types well supported with increases in excess of the currency impact.

Fine First Lambs lifted 1.5 to 2.5 percent with coarser lambs rising 1.5 to 3 percent.
