Unlucky mutton succumbs to Friday 13th

The Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) continues to hold above the 800¢ level as the Victorian flush shows no sign of getting underway yet. However, a jump in sheep yardings in recent weeks has seen the National Mutton Indicator (NMI) take a bit of a slide.

Supply and demand find equilibrium

The main ovine indicators have found some sort of support in the last fortnight, with the Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) spending a second week just above 800¢. Mutton has maintained its position in the 99th percentile.

A floor has been found

The new key support level of 800¢ has held this week for the Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI). Prices steadied in all states but it was the sucker lambs coming out of NSW which were priced the best.

Tanking time for lambs not for mutton

It is tanking time for lambs, but not so much for sheep. Supply has been improving for both lamb and sheep, but it’s only lamb prices which have been on the wane. WA is a different story, with lamb and sheep values both falling heavily.

It’s not as bad as wool

The lamb market continued to decline this week and mutton managed to maintain its strength. Wool producers can take some solace from this, in a week when wool prices have been tanking, at least their stock are still worth very good money.

100¢ lower in just over a fortnight

Just over two weeks ago the Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) was peaking at 951¢/kg cwt and yesterday it closed at 851¢ - how quickly sale yard sentiment can change as we approach the spring flush.

Correction or the downturn?

Lamb markets tanked this week. They were coming off close to record highs, but the price falls tell us that something has shifted in the supply/demand equation. So which is it?

Prices ease amidst short supply

Despite being within the midst of tight winter supply prices declined this week across most national indicator categories. The benchmark Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) mirrored the fortunes of the national sale yard prices dropping 1.7% to close yesterday at 926¢/kg cwt.

Lambs at 1000 no longer a fantasy

Lamb supply continues to contract and with it, prices are on the rise, mostly. There were a couple of negative spots, especially in the restocker department, but we did see an indicator break through the extraordinary 1000¢ level.

Lamb rally not done yet

Remember last year when lamb prices moved through 800¢ and we thought it couldn’t go much further? We have had a case of Déjà vu this year, although prices were 100¢ higher, and this week have continued to rally.
