Revealed: Australia’s top 10 terminal and maternal ram studs of 2023

Excerpt from The Land:

Times were tough in the sheepmeat industry in 2023.

Yet the terminal and maternal ram market was able to counter a major commercial market downturn to perform remarkably well.

The National Trade Lamb Indicator dropped nearly 50 per cent in 2023, from 811c/kg in January to a low of 421c/kg in September when most terminal and maternal ram sales were underway. It had recovered to more than 600c/kg by the end of the year.

In contrast, the average ram price of $3691 across the top 10 terminal and maternal studs in Australia was down only 30 per cent compared to the 2022 top 10 average price of $5316.
