Rural Exchange 09/12/2017

It’s been a long time between drinks for the lamb sector, according to ASB’s latest Farmshed Economics Report. 

Nathan Penny, ASB rural economist and co-author of the report, admits when lamb prices lifted this year, it surprised everyone - including him. 

Mr Penny joins Rural Exchange to discuss lamb prices and how confident farmers can be heading into summer.

“We think prices can stay healthy through the season,” he says

Looking at New Zealand’s various farming industries, Mr Penny remarks that “it’s hard to find a sector where we’ve got weakness.”
