Brian Wilson, of Aramoana, said he entered about 650 Suffolk-Perendale-cross lambs in the Balclutha store sheep sale.
He had run about 650 ewes on his "hilly" 250ha farm since 1993 and had attended the event at the Balclutha Saleyards for the past few years.
All of his lambs sold.
He did not put a reserve price on his flock.
He was philosophical about sale prices being down a bit this year on past years.
"It is what it is."
Rural Livestock agent Rob Fowler said the prices fetched for ewes at the sale ranged between $120 to $170 per sheep.
"That’s pretty good."
Prices for lambs remained steady and ranged between "$100 down to $50 for the little jiggers".
