RETAIL MOVE TO NEW SEASON LAMB WILL BOOST TRADE – IFA

Sheep

Following a meeting between IFA and senior management in Musgrave’s in Cork this week, IFA National Sheep Committee Chairman, John Lynskey said Supervalu will make the full change over to new season lamb from next week and, along with other retailers making similar moves, this will increase demand and should boost lamb prices.

John Lynskey said new season lamb is making €6.00 to €6.20/kg. He said the poorer weather conditions have slowed down numbers and the retail changeover has increased demand. He said hoggets are making from €5.30 to €5.50/kg depending on quality.
