Due to the seasonal increase in the supply of store lambs, the market saw a downward adjustment with regards to average prices. Although we saw a decrease in the average price of store lambs, the average price remains at a high level. We can expect a further decrease in prices as more store lambs will enter the market towards the end of August. Fat lambs prices remained very high with the price for fat ewes following suite.
