Prime ewes made good money at Christchurch livestock sales.

Heavy ewes reached $145 at livestock sales at Canterbury Agricultural Park, in Christchurch, this week.

The best pen of prime ewes just topped the cream of the prime lambs which peaked at $142.

Both markets retained strong prices made last week.

Store lambs also had a good sale with the best lambs making as much as $101.
