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.

ESTLI pushing through 900¢ again

Just yesterday we released a piece on the prospect of a late Winter rally for the Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI), signalling a test towards 935¢ this month. So far east coast markets are behaving compliantly, with the key lamb indicator finishing the week at 908¢/kg cwt.

ESTLI hits 900¢ but mutton has halted

The lamb rally continued this week, as supplies continued to tighten. The Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) set a new record, just hitting 900¢. Mutton markets might have hit their peak, however, having come off in recent weeks.

Winter tightening pushes prices northward… in the East

Declining sale yard throughput and slaughter levels for lamb and sheep markets are making their presence felt on price movements this week. Across the national market indicators prices were up for all categories of stock except for mutton.

WA lamb catch the east

WA lamb producers have joined the party, with their lambs almost the same price as those on the east. For the east coast, it was either steady or lower for most sheep and lamb indicators.

A breather or an early peak

With lamb and mutton reaching historic price highs sale yard throughput levels are extending higher too, which is uncharacteristic for this time in the season. The increased volumes have weighed on the market this week to see most categories of lamb and mutton soften.

It’s a record, and it’s only May

The rally in lamb prices is yet to slow, as you will have no doubt heard. The Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) hit a new record yesterday and it has come at least a month earlier than expected.

High prices yet to fix supply problem

Scomo’s win came as a surprise, but lamb prices streaking through 800¢ was not so much. The timing is a bit earlier than we expected, it raises some interesting questions as to when prices might ease.

Supply still strong, but a tightening looms.

Yarding figures remain elevated for lamb and sheep despite a recent downturn. Lamb slaughter levels are above average too, while sheep slaughter has returned to levels consistent with the five-year average seasonal trend. Perhaps it is a good omen for producers as we approach Winter that prices continue to firm in the face of strong supply.
