AFTER the post Christmas slump in lamb sales with most opting for chicken and pork over the holiday period, the new year has bought about a fresh lot of lambs and prices to go with it.
As sheep markets prepare to get back into the weekly grind, many yards have witnessed an increase in heavyweights coming through earlier.
The indicator for lamb was 527c/kg Tuesday night.
Landmark Langlands Hanlon owner Geoff Rice, Forbes, said although the lamb market had surrendered before Christmas, it had since risen along with the cattle market.
