Please note prices accurate when report was written but due to the volatility currently prices may alter.
The trade for prime organic cattle has been steady in the past month or so, little change in price and finished cattle numbers coming forward meeting current abattoir demand. Early turned out cattle didn’t have the best of starts, but will move quicker now with the turn in the weather to help grass growing conditions.
The cull cow price has reached record heights, demand remains very good and the volumes of cows coming forward still remains low. With these factors determining pricing levels, it is likely we will see high prices for a while although perhaps they have reached the extent for the time being.
Old season lamb prices have remained static for some weeks now. Abattoirs requirements have been met by a constant volume of lambs which has ironed out the volatility we have seen in the past. Supply was greatly helped by a very kind winter and early spring with plenty of feed for lambs. Lambs have finished well and reached good weights and levels of finish.
New season organic lambs will be starting soon which will help fill the gap of the inevitable dwindling supply of old seasons.

The cattle and sheep trade continue to be very strong after over 12 months of rising prices.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine signifies a huge political shock to markets in a long time. The consequences for world agricultural markets is significant. Looking ahead the immediate effect on trade is the rising cost of fuel and grain prices – wheat is already up 50%. Amidst the world of uncertainty beef and lamb prices and demand remain strong with organic producers continuing to enjoy good returns.
Dairy cow and heifer prices have eased over the last few weeks as producers react to increased input costs. Organic store cattle continue to be in very strong demand from graziers who seem to have started their spring buying earlier than most years with still plentiful supplies of winter feed available. Finishing cattle, again are in strong demand from finishers.
We are short of organic store cattle and will be for the next 2 months. Please do not hesitate to contact us. We are quite happy to discuss your options with no obligation or commitment.
