The national lamb price record has been broken twice in a week.
Corowa Saleyards broke the on Monday with a price of $350 a head.
But it was broken just three days later when Wagga lambs made $354.20 on Thursday.
The price was received for a pen of second cross Poll Dorset lambs, weighing in at 95 kilograms to 100 kilograms live-weight and possibly as much as 48 kilograms dressed.
The lambs were offered by Goulburn vendor Joe Mooney purchased by Fletcher International of Dubbo.
Landmark Wagga livestock agent Peter Cabot said few people in the industry would have seen lambs that big before.

This follows Walla Walla vendors, the Mickan Brothers of "Greenvale", reaching $350 on Monday in Corowa and Federation Council said it is just the beginning for the council run saleyards.
"This includes achieving over 782,855 sheep sold this far during the 2018/19 financial year, equating to the sale of over $113 million," mayor Pat Bourke said.
"This is terrific news not only for the lucky sellers, who are very well known and successful producers, but also for council and the wider industry.
"Council is proud to be a part of this by providing such a proven facility and I would like to acknowledge the efforts of our staff who work so hard in preparing and managing this facility for every weekly sale."
Cr Bourke said council is "actively pursuing" other improvement opportunities for the site.
"A new master-plan will be developed in the near future," he said.
"This plan will identify and guide, in close consultation with the agents, trucking firms and other stakeholders, future works that will continue to ensure a strong focus on animal welfare, work health and safety, environmental performance, and efficient traffic movements.
"This means more value for everyone and continues to ensure the facility keeps it competitive position in the market."
David Hill of David Hill Livestock and Property Albury said the 40 lambs sold at the Corowa Saleyards for top money weighed 95 kilograms live weight after a 20-hour curfew.
He estimated they could dress out at 48 kilograms.
"The market was firm to dearer ... these were exceptional lambs," Mr Hill said.
Mr Hill said it was hard to guess if or when the market might break the new record.
He said a lot of work had gone into meeting the market with the Walla Walla lambs. They were finished in a feedlot and fed both grain and pellets.
Mr Hill said the finish on the lambs was testament to good genetics and preparation.
