Rain and low supply provide a welcome boost

Welcome rain across the eastern seaboard this week provided a jolt to lamb prices with most NLRS reported categories posting solid gains of between 20-60¢/kg on a cwt basis. The expected lower supply of lamb for the 2020 season already making a presence in lower weekly slaughter volumes and adding further support to lamb prices.

Only one week in the doldrums for mutton

Before Christmas mutton prices took a dramatic downturn. The talk was Chinese demand suddenly evaporating. The New Year has seen mutton return to previous levels, while lamb has also found some strength.

Buyers check off their wish list

Processors appeared to tick off the Christmas list early this year, with plenty of supply to see sheep and lambs booked up. There was no last minute rush to fill orders, and prices took the hit, dropping back to levels not seen since April.

Ovine yardings reaching a peak

It is the time of year when lamb yardings reach their seasonal high, driven largely by Victoria. It was Sheep that reached a record last week however. This is no surprise given the very good prices at a time of year when they usually hit their lows.

WA closing on the east coast

Despite the free-flowing supply in the south Victorian lamb prices found some support, while mutton moved to a new record. WA lamb prices have also rebounded strongly and are now not far off the east coast.

More of the same for lambs and sheep

Sheep and lamb markets are doing funny things. Lamb slaughter is well behind the same time last year, yet prices keep falling. Sheep slaughter is the same as last year, and on the rise, but prices remain steady.

Sheep prices defy volumes

Mixed signals for the lamb market this week as the spring flush appears underway in South Australia, but Victorian volumes still sheepish. Speaking of sheep, mutton prices are holding up resolutely in the face of elevated volumes at the saleyard and at processors.

Mutton still finding support

There was no real impact from the rain this week in sheep and lamb markets, with a cautious approach seemingly being taken. There was also the issue of the three month outlook and continued strong supplies.

Pressure on markets but support should be found

Sheep and lamb markets continued to slide this week, with supply ramping up. We don’t know what happened with yardings and slaughter this week yet, but last week sheep slaughter was heading higher.
