On Monday the 5th of July 2021 saw another successful Digital weekly Store Lamb weekly sale hosted by the Central Region office. There was an offer of over 1800 small stock and 60 slaughter cattle this week from around the Eastern Cape, Western Cape and the Free State. The small stock market market saw a slight price correction due to more animals becoming available, which is expected to roll over into next week. Despite a price correction, the South African market is still a net importer of protein, which creates a positive opportunity for small stock producers to keep producing.
