Organic Prime Beef
A slow start to 2018 as many abattoirs work on reduced kills to match a reduced January demand for beef. However things look to be stabilising and while we might not see great improvements in price levels initially, we should see an improvement in demand especially if it goes colder. Supply numbers look on the tight side as we go through to the spring, which could well help in improving the market.
The Organic cull cow trade has followed the conventional cow trade by weakening marginally. Numbers are likely to tighten up which might well help to improve the trade as we move toward spring time.
Organic Prime Lamb
Lamb prices have strengthened across the sector. Organic lamb numbers are reasonably tight as we go through January, demand is picking up. Its very likely we will see a much better trade toward the end of February as requirement by abattoirs and processors increases.

We continue to move record numbers of organic store cattle and are still looking for more supplies to meet demand. The strongest demand is for the better quality cattle, particularly from continentals out of native bred cows, Hereford, Angus, South Devon’s etc.
Forage supplies seem plentiful as we go into the winter months but straw availability is short and expensive. Hard feed i.e. barley is also at higher levels than last year. In spite of these factors and with a good finished price, prospects for organic store cattle suppliers and buyers are good.
We have managed this autumn to place a number of organic TB restricted cattle into organic Approved Finishing Units (AFU’s). If you are unfortunate enough to go down with TB please give us a ring as we should be able to move your stock at reasonable returns.
Looking forward we predict the demand for store cattle to continue in to the spring.
Please contact us with your availability and if you are a buyer, your requirements.
