NDSU and University of Minnesota Extension Sheep Specialist Travis Hoffman says the lamb market has been at a steady incline for the last year. “It really couldn’t be much better. We’ve had as lucrative of a 2021 as anyone could’ve imagined in terms of sales. We know that input costs are up and so there’s still some balances to our bottom line. We’ve been over $2 a pound for over a solid 20 month and we’ve had more lamb that was sold at retail this year that was also at a higher price.”
