News that catering trade re-opening will help as they will all need to re-stock.....

Hopefully
They have been already that’s what caused most of the lift in the beef price. Big operators are about restocked hence the price levelling. I was told Dunbia had dropped the price this week, can anyone confirm? Smaller scale trade historically used a lot of imported, not sure about supply of that atm, that might keep the trade supported if supplies are tight

Likes of McD will have already restocked but pubs and restaurants have only had the nod for 4th July opening today so surely that will help?

Double load too follow a bad trade, 1/2 too follow a good one. (Unless inside information suggests otherwise... )
So do we follow a good trade and send next week because caterers should in theory be stocking up on meat so lamb should hold or atleast rise next week or is next week a Big Dipper because everybody’s going too send???

That is the big question isn't it! I wouldn't expect a rise when historically the trade starts to slide now every year as more grass lambs come forward, especially after this latest flush of grass.
I can see more numbers forward next week, few of my mates have all done the same thing this week "lamb is only just over £2, bugger em lets get some grass down while the suns out!" Although talking to one tonight, he's gathering at 6 tomorrow to draw lambs for Bakewell and he can be back home before the dew burns off. We shall see, I'd like a crystal ball but if I had one I'd probably cock it up! ?

these covid outbreaks at the processing plants isnt going to help , either public confidence or supply / demand at market level . Im holding for now except a few culls to go friday i withdrew creep about month ago , going to be a need for whole of europe to restock when holiday trade / travel opens up properly so cant see prices slipping too far , probably be stand on for a while,
