AMMO’s first sale for 2017 was held in Narrandera on 2nd June 2017. A total of 34568 kgs were offered in 52 lots and a sale clearance of 90% was achieved at an average price of 1568 c kg. Demand for mohair under 32 microns was generally buoyant. Top auction prices were BFFKID 22.1 micron at 2590c/kg, AKID 28.2 micron at 2200c/kg. Whilst BYG 28.4 micron sold for 2020c/kg. The best adult price was for a grower lot of AFFH 30.3 micron sold on behalf of P& J Heggart that made 1950c/kg.
The last auction of 2016 held on 25th November saw a total of 41,780kgs of mohair offered. The auction was characterised by less buoyant bidding than the previous auction, and prices were down which followed International trends and reflected the impact of a volatile currency situation.
On a positive note, the overall clearance of 96.6% was very pleasing and the sale average of $14.22/kg was reasonably good.
A full Preliminary Auction report is attached. Thank you for your participation.

The Pure Australian Mohair Project has been initiated to encourage niche market development for mohair of a specific type – Weaving Tyoe Mohair. Since its inception we have seen significant change in the improvement of the individual flocks, the quality clip results and the top results.
Australia urgently needs to fulfil its mohair market responsibility to deliver the needed qualities and quantities of mohair to help keep mohair as a valuable natural fibre in the needs, uses and vision of manufacturers.
