Both live and deadweight markets strengthen following Christmas

The liveweight lamb trade has been strengthening over the Christmas period and in the week ended 6 January reached its highest level since June 2015.

The SQQ at GB auction markets reached 171.5p/kg – up 7p on the previous week. This reduces the difference compared to the same week in 2015 to 16p, the smallest difference since October. The largest increase was seen on Monday 4 January, following most markets closing for New Year’s Day. The GB SQQ reached 174.0p/kg, up 12p on the previous week.
