RESTOCKER activity was strong at last week's quarterly goat sale at Dubbo, where 1100 goats were yarded.

The market was quoted as $5 to $10 dearer across all categories compared to the previous sale in February.

Auctioneer Joe Portelli, PT Lord Dakin and Associates, Dubbo said the market for lighter goats was $5 dearer while heavy goats was $10 to $15 dearer.

"Processor activity was firm but the restockers were very competitive," he said.

"They made between $8 and $10 a kilogram (at the sale), which is great compared to over the hooks."

Mr Portelli said numbers were back, with fewer Australian Bush Goats (ABG) penned last week.

Boer does topped at $360 a head for a pen of does with kids at foot. The bulk of the doe offering sold from $140 to $220/hd. Boer wethers topped at $335/hd on account of Kerwin Perry, Tarana. Boer bucks sold from $180 to top at $300/hd. ABG billies from $100 to $190/hd, while limited nannies sold from $65 to $145/hd.

Quotes from the day include Kerwin Perry, Tarana who sold 54 Boer wethers to top at $335/hd, and a single buck for $280/hd.

Jason Mewburn, Tomingley sold 126 Boer wethers to top at $315/hd and average $234/hd. He also offered 34 does, which topped at $188 and 31 bucks which topped at $186/hd.
