4H Lamb prices
« on: July 05, 2020, 03:40:54 PM »
Daughters show was canceled and now we need to sell her lambs . Its only her second year doing them so not sure what a reasonable price is for them . Will most likely go on CL so I know she's not getting the price per pound she got last year . What's a good selling price for the guys that are into selling Lambs ?

Really $10 a pound . Didn't know lamb was that expensive.

Maybe, it is speciality sheep, usda, happy critter, and vacuum packed. I hope your daughters sale goes well

There was a bunch of online sales going on. Nobody did one by you guys?

Another kink is butchers are backlogged really bad, so if you can I'd suggest asking if there are buyers or something being done.

My girl's show pigs are going to an auction put on by stevens co cattlemen association, they're going to have the fat stock sale as normal,  but all the showing and fair itself is canceled.

FFA and 4H aren't involved with the auction

I would say that you should probably take a look at your sale results from last year, and get a good average.  Our little county fair averages about 4.25 a pound for lambs, away from the auction, especially on Craigs List I wouldn't expect more than about 75% of your fair average. 

You could try to sale halves for a bit better percentage.  Get a butcher date and deliver it yourself to the cutter, that will help your sale a lot.
I thought about averaging it out to last year's price ( a little over 1200 for two lambs )  but finding buyers at that price on CL here is going to be near impossible.  If she could get close to  the original purchase price and feed cost up till now Wife and I would be happy .

@jackalope unfortunately itís the same fair that my daughter was raising market goats for and there is no online auction for our local kids. What I did was set a date at the local meat shop and have them all sold as packaged meat. Iím hauling them down on Saturday. Iíve got the burger sold for $10/lb and the prime cuts for $15

What county fair is this for?  There is a buyer in Bonney Lake that purchases lambs regularly.  He isn't paying fair prices as he is a commercial packer, but he does buy lambs 365 days a year.  PM me and I will pass you his info.
West Valley fair in Yakima . Appreciate that Pm coming later today
