I've got some feeders I was going to take to the sale barn in a couple of weeks. Would this be a good time to take them or would it be better to wait till after the new year? Also have some cull ewes to go. Thanks.
I can safely predict that there'll be a spike in price on the East coast for light lambs with good finish in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Whether that's what you mean by feeder lamb and whether you're interested in shipping to New Holland are a different matter.
Bill, The lambs are about 50lbs and in good flesh, but not really fat. The lambs will go through a sale in Mexico MO. I understand that the majority of the sheep and goats that run through the sale go to New York. I thought there was always better prices for light lambs in Dec., I just couldn't remember if it was significant. Thanks.
