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.

Uncharacteristic lift in NSW throughput weighs on price

Significant increases to yarding levels for both lamb and sheep across the eastern states in recent weeks has started to weigh on prices. Higher than average lamb yarding was noted in Victoria but the big lift in lamb throughput was reserved for NSW. Mutton yarding levels were elevated in all east coast states.

All red for sheep and lamb

Seeing all red on the Eastern States Daily Indicator Report for weekly sheep and lamb movements has been a rare occurrence recently. This week finally saw enough stock come to market to send prices lower.

Early flush soaked up by offshore players

Lamb yarding numbers are starting to climb across the east coast fueled by lifting Victorian throughput as the spring flush gets underway. However, prices are yet to dampen as a resurgence in offshore demand, particularly from China has export buyers scrambling to fill orders.

Mutton back in favour

October has started out pretty well for sheep and lamb markets, with lambs finding solid support and mutton back on the rise. October is traditionally a time of strengthening supply, so we might be seeing another lift in demand.

Plenty of price variance across the country

Lamb prices continued to track along sideway in east coast markets, but there were some wild swings in the remote states. The Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) slipped below 800¢ for the first time since May, but things are worse in Tasmania and WA.

Lamb up mutton down

The lamb market seems to have found a level it like, but mutton continued to slide this week. It doesn’t seem price moves were in response to supply, with demand shifts driving markets early in the spring.

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.
