Trade low for spring and old season lamb

With “supportive” major retailers currently promoting New Zealand lamb, and high numbers of both Spring and Old Season Lamb coming onto the market, trade levels have stayed low over the last couple of weeks, reports Frank Marshall auctioneers.

Only the very best spring lambs came to over 125p/kg, most well finished sorts from 115p to 130p/kg.

Messrs Brough topped the most recent trade with two pens of Texel crosses, with several other regular vendors being rewarded for fresh coated, well finished lambs of superior quality. There were several runs of lambs that were over the top, and too heavy, possibly having been kept a week or two long in the hope of improved prices.
