No way general public can afford beef if it goes to £5 kilo. Would be worst thing that could happen as we might end up like the sheep trade and have big crash in price.

Agreed,lets get to £4/kg steadily,and go from there,we are in the best position we ever have been at the moment.If you cant make a profit at that,your costs are too high and you need to find out why.

As fast as the beef price goes up then stores follow!! as for the consumers not being able to afford beef at £5/kilo dw, no reason they have to as the current mark up ( after costs ) from farm gate to supermarket shelve is massive... sirloin in the shops is around £16/£17/ kilo for example...

Waitrose have funded beef producers to establish their true cost of production, warts and all. No one has , so far, shown a figure per kg that represents a profit....
Higher prices are great, but costs are eating it all faster than the price is increasing.

Project Lamport 2020

  • 523
  • 0

Project Lamport, now in its seventh year, is the UK’s leading R&D trials event. The original concept aimed to develop a cultural approach to blackgrass control, but has since evolved over the years. The site now explores improving soil health, as well as a comprehensive research project that investigates the impact of cultivations, compaction and cover crops on soil structure, organic matter and microbiology.

Expect weekly updates on Project Lamport, allowing you to participate in the entire journey rather than just the final product. These updates conclude with the official Project Lamport site demonstration and a live Q&A with our experts on the 15th of July.
