Lamb factory quotes down
Sheep prices have taken another hit this week with factory quotes for lambs down by another 10c/kg, dropping below the benchmark €5/kg for the first time since the start of the year.
This equates to another €2 cut per lamb, and comes on top of the €12 cut that lamb prices took last week.
While prices have held fairly steady in the marts, they are up to €30/hd back on the same period last year, despite the levels of supply only increasing by 5-6pc.
