WA markets have remained stable during the past week with some interest starting to come through from feedlots. Current market indications for new season lambs are around $4.70/kg live weight and feedlots around $1.50/kg HSCW. Lambs are definitely lighter than this time last year and it does look like there will be an oversupply of stores and not a lot of finished lambs. We have also reached a point in the WA market that there are some traders and speculators looking to take a punt. Store lambs at $30 per head do not carry the same risk as the ones trading at $90 per head last year. On the east coast, numbers are much the same in SA as they are in WA. In Vic and NSW, they’re slightly better.
