Liveweight lamb prices have returned to the normal trend seen at this time of year and fallen in the past week, as higher numbers have come to the market. In the week ended 6 July, the liveweight GB SQQ was 2p lower than the previous week at 193.5p/kg. However, this remained 30p/kg higher than the same week in 2015. The main price falls were seen in recent days, with the price on Wednesday 6 July being 2p lower than the previous week at 191.9p/kg. Prices have fallen despite the continued weakening of the pound against the euro, as numbers coming to GB auction markets has increased, while demand for the end of Ramadan celebrations ended.
