Live and deadweight lamb markets show stability

The liveweight lamb trade has been relatively stable in the past week, following the falls seen in the previous week.

In the week ended 21 October the GB SQQ was the same level as a week earlier at 142.7p/kg. Despite the trade remaining stable, higher weekly prices in the same week last year have led this year’s price to fall to 12p lower than 2014. Prices began the week below levels seen seven days earlier but in more recent days, despite prices staying at about the same level, they have moved above those from the previous week, when they were falling. Prices on Wednesday 21 October were at 142.2p/kg, 4p higher than the previous week.
