I listened to Jamie Mackay talking on The Country radio show last week about the retail price of a rack of lamb.
Farmers in this country are selling their lambs for about $6 per kilogram. That’s not a lot of money. The average healthy lamb will weigh between 16 and 18 kilos, so in round figures we’re talking about a farmer doing a whole lot of work for about $100 per animal.
