Lamb Prices have crash this year and are down 30% on last year and reached the lowest price in six years. The supermarket prices don't reflect this though and their prices are only down by 6%.
To put that into what you pay in the supermarket its £13 per kg compared to the farmer receiving £1.36 per kg.
Is this fair?
Someone is making a lot of money somewhere without putting in any of the effort and as anyone who keeps sheep will tell you there is a fair bit of effort involved!
So from the 1st of August to the 7th across England there is a #NoLambWeek being staged. It's not going to change the world but it is a statement, hopefully farmers will stand together and not sell any lambs during the first week of August.
It turns out to be a bad year to get back into keeping sheep!
