Falls seen for both live and deadweight lamb
The price of lamb at GB liveweight markets has fallen further in the past week, despite the pound continuing to weaken and throughputs being lower, suggesting that demand for sheep meat has fallen. In the week ended 19 October, the GB SQQ fell by 6p compared to the previous week to 160.1p/kg. This left prices 17p higher than the same week in 2015, as prices at this time last year were stable.
