THERE'S no security for bragging rights when it comes to holding onto the State record saleyard lamb price crown at the moment.

Records have been tumbling, sale after sale, with the latest record set on Wednesday last week, when a line of 54 Prime SAMM ram lambs from Bunkin Farming Enterprises, Dumbleyung, made $289 a head.
