MARKET REPORT AMMO SALE 1.6.18  (author D. Williamson)

With the last Cape for the season almost at an end and prices moving up, we were going to see a dearer market for AMMO’s sale on Friday 1st of June.

The reduced supply of good quality and length mohair because of the prolonged drought in the Cape has seen demand steadily rise. While manufacturers were prepared to follow the market, they were not prepared to support the boom and bust price hikes of the past. Fortunately steady rises (and sanity) prevailed and we saw steady increases over this Cape selling season.

Since the last AMMO sale in Australia (November 2017), the Rand has appreciated against the AUD and this meant higher AUD prices for our sale.

Over 28,000kgs were on offer. The offering was well classed and the general quality and length was excellent attracting very strong general competition from the main buyers in the Cape.
