Liveweight lamb prices fall
New Season lamb prices declined in the past week as higher numbers were reported to have come through GB auction markets.
In the week ended 8 June, the new season GB SQQ was down by 2p compared to the previous week at 200.5p/kg. Prices remained above the levels from 2015, however the gap fell to just 9p higher following increases at this time last year. Prices have fallen as higher number of lambs have been coming to market in the past week leading to higher supplies, while demand has not increased in line with supplies.
