As of the 21st of Nov BB has raised its price to $130 a kg and will stay at this price until March 2019.  This is due to high demand from overseas and the local market and limited supply.
It's certainly getting harder down here.  Used to able to shoot 15 in a night easily now your lucky if you get 2

still got 130 a couple weeks back.   he reckoned it would stay there for a while and doubts it would go any higher as the chinese have gone to a synthetic fibre thats cheaper so bit of the markets buyers have disapeared,  think most of it just goes to the merino blend now.

anyone here had a go at exporting skins by anychance?
