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.

Not raining grass but restockers banking on it

It has been some time since we’ve talked about rainfall driving sheep markets for three weeks in a row. Precipitation has all but completed the autumn break for key sheep areas in Victoria and South East SA. It doesn’t rain grass, but try telling restockers that this week.

A bit of rain and it all turns green

The title of this commentary isn’t referring to the grass but the sale yard price board for lamb and sheep across the east coast. Although, if we keep seeing rain falling in all the right places it won’t be long before the pasture starts to green up as well.

Supply disruptions and Merino moves

Over a couple of weeks of supply disruptions, lamb and sheep markets have largely been treading water. There have, however, been some interesting moves in the Merino lamb category, if not in the prime lamb space.

Pre-Easter supply glut fails to dampen price

Prices for all NLRS reported categories of east coast lamb and sheep have risen from levels recorded in mid-March, despite most measures of supply reaching toward seasonal highs, to see most categories of lamb fetching over 700¢ and mutton holding above 500¢ this week.

ESTLI back through 700¢ but only catching OTH

Lamb prices have had another positive week, with the Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) heading towards Easter above 700¢. As outlined earlier in the week, this could just be the start of bigger things to come.

Tightening trend is the producer’s friend

There has been a softer trend present in lamb and sheep yardings in recent weeks. It is not uncommon to see a reduced sale yard offering as we head toward the Easter lull and with recent rainfall to much of the Eastern third of the country it seems to have encouraged firmer prices.

Records for sheep and it’s only March

We knew it was going to happen, but the extent of this week’s move in mutton prices has been rather extraordinary. The indicators haven’t reflected the full move yet but we can get some ideas from today’s sale at Wagga.

Mutton firms despite elevated supply

A bit of a mixed bag for lamb price movements this week across the Eastern states, with Restocker, Trade Lambs and Mutton the only categories to see a price lift. Mutton prices remained remarkably strong in the face of elevated yarding and slaughter throughout much of March..

Lamb prices experiencing a case of Déjà vu

Another week, and more of the same for lamb prices. While lamb producers should be happy that they’re not trying to sell cattle at the moment, many are still thinking about the prices they didn’t lock in earlier in the year, as prices drift along the same path as last year.
