Mutton market trends

There is some resistance towards high mutton prices at the moment from consumers, which coupled with higher expected supply of lambs has added to the pressure on prices, according to AMT.

The lamb price is therefore expected to decrease further in the immediate future and can trend sideways over the next month or so.
