Market Advisor: Lamb prices show seasonal strength

FARGO - Lamb prices have shown a strong seasonal price improvement during February and March. Prices at northern Plains markets for fed lambs have increased from about $100 per hundredweight (cwt) in early January to more than $120 per cwt in mid- March. The strength in prices was due to both lower supplies of lambs and stronger ethnic and holiday demand for lamb meat.
