COROWA saleyards experienced a major spike in activity during 2018-19 with throughput increasing by 175,000 for lamb and sheep numbers compared to the previous financial year.
The saleyards recorded an Australian record in June this year with a pen belonging to the Mickan family from Walla selling for $350 a head with the mark subsequently bettered by $4 at Wagga in the same week.
But the lamb and sheep throughput hit the 795,000 mark with a total value of more than $115 million.
The 2017-19 throughput was 620,000 with sales growing by 36 per cent in the last five years, according to the Federation Council website.
The saleyards are owned and managed by the council and held every Monday.
They are the fourth largest selling facility in NSW.
