The week of June 22nd 2020 saw a continuation of high prices on Store Lambs due to the shortage in market supply, with Fat Lambs again fetching favourably good prices. We are expecting the shortage of Store Lambs to remain with us into next week and much of the same can be expected regarding price levels. Due to transport costs, we tend to see bigger lots of fetching higher prices.
