A top of $185 a head was reached when vendors offered their goats at the Dubbo goat sale recently.
Two-year-old Boer does topped at $170 while Boer bucks made the top price for the day.
While female values were said to have dropped by as much as $20/head, the overall market rose by about $5 on the previous sale.
The yarding of 5200 from across NSW attracted limited restocker activity according to Dubbo's PT Lord Dakin and Associates' goat specialist Joe Portelli.
Meat processors were said to be active at the sale reflecting the type of goats available on the day.
"I'd say 70 per cent of the yarding was Boer cross, meat goats with the balance being Australian bush goats," Mr Portelli said.
Vendors travelled from Mullalley, Cobar and as far as Barham while buyers came from further afar, including Melbourne and Wodonga in Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and Sydney.
Mr Portelli said the best money was paid for a pen of 10 two-year-old, full-blood Boer does at $170/head which sold to P and D Exports, SA, to go to Malaysia.
As well as making the top price for her does, Boer goat stud breeder Adlie Botes, 'Kingston', Inverell, received $60/head for a pen of 68, four to five-year-old F5 Boer-cross does to the same buyer.
A pen of 44 bucks sold at $50/head although one was sold separately for $100.
Mr Portelli said bush billies ranged from $18 to $56 and averaged $38, while bush nannies were sold to a top of $35 and averaged $22.
Boer nannies were said to receive between $30 and $170/head to average an estimated $65.
"Some good lines of Boer wethers sold from $35 to $185, averaging $58 while Boer bucks sold pretty well, $65 to $105 to average $85."
A pen of wethers offered by David Pottie, Cumnock sold to William Inglis, Camden for $185 each.
A run of 40 four-month-old Boer wethers offered by Jason Newburn, 'Glen Alpin', Tomingley were sold for $45/head.
The only Kalahari red Boer buck in the sale made $120 when sold on behalf of vendors Barry and Helen Stephen. 'Reality Bends', Warren.
The red buck was purchased by Lonnie Shepherd, Toongi.
