Liveweight lamb market remains stable

The liveweight lamb trade has seen relative stability in the past week, following a large gain seen in the previous seven days.

This meant the gap compared to the previous year grew to almost 20p as the price in the same week last year was up on the previous week. Prices were fairly volatile throughout the week and ended the period 1p lower than a week before on Wednesday 12 January, at 168.7p/kg.

R4L steers were back 3p to 343.9p/kg, 30p/kg behind their level at the start of 2015. R4L heifers fared better, being back a penny on the week at 342.8p/kg.
