Liveweight lamb trade strengthens further

For the third consecutive week, the liveweight lamb trade has averaged above levels seen in the previous week but the rate of gains has slowed. In the week ended 18 November the GB SQQ was up by 2p on the previous week at 155.4p/kg. This reduced the gap compared to the same week in 2014 to 19p due to a smaller increase seen last year. However, the majority of the gains were seen at the beginning of the week with prices more recently falling behind their levels from a week earlier. On Wednesday 18 November prices were back almost 4p on the week at 152.1p/kg.
