Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker


Where have you got this information from? just spoke to 2 abattoir operators and they would love to know!
Lamb skins £1
Ewe pelts £0
I think i read on a meadow quality report that skins were making alot more money, in some part due to the tannerys opening up after being shut during covid.

Livestock Farmer

Monday 29th November

Arctic conditions in the Peak District made travelling very difficult, but intrepid farmers and hauliers managed to deliver 355 Cattle and 917 Sheep to Bakewell.

Those that were able to present stock were rewarded with an excellent trade in all departments.

Store & Breeding Cattle numbers were well down on the catalogued entry with some 180 on offer out of about 300 that were booked in.

The majority of the cancellations have already rebooked in for next Monday 6th December.

Out of the Store Cattle that did make it to market there were plenty of highlights with Steers to £1,350, Heifers £1,320 and Bulls £1,050.

In the Breeding section Cows & Calves made up to £1,700 with in calf Cows to £950.

For such a wintry day there was decent entry of Finished Cattle with 72 on offer. Top figures 308p and £1,982 per head and the Heifer average at 245.5p demonstrates the strength of demand.

OTM and Feeding Cows were also well sold with 94 forward. Top prices 235p and £1,538 per head. The overall average looked particularly good at 147.8p.

Not a good day for showing Calves with only 9 appearing.

In the Sheep department there were 802 lambs – a remarkable figure in view of the conditions. Nothing wrong with the trade with the best to 324p and £161.70 per head.

The SQQ average looked healthy at 291.4p.

Just 115 Cull Sheep with Ewes to £152 and the average £108.13.
