$9 lamb price keeps farmers happy

The buoyant lamb market continues, with some farmers being offered a price of $9 a kilo.

Head of Livestock for Heartland Bank, Wayne McEntee told Rural Exchange that the price was very attractive.

"If you can sell lamb for $9 a kilo, that's a good price and a good margin and strong profit for most farmers," he said

He said store lambs were selling for between $150-$165.

"There are still a few out there, which is nice to hear."
