Drat! Just paid £4.99 a kilo at the co-op on Sunday, for a nice leg of lamb for next Sunday's dinner. Should have waited a couple more days. Good deal.

Beats me why new zeland lamb is so cheap, but welsh and english is so expensive?
10,000 Miles to the shop should cost more than 10 miles.

The funny thing is that rates for Lamb at market are approx £30 to £35 (or equivalent) in both countries. In fact if you look at prices for lamb since Xmas it has risen quite sharply for all lamb. So you have to believe this is a combination of marketing cost by NZ lamb and loss leading offer by supermarkets as a lot of people associate lamb with Easter.

Obviously new seasons lamb is more expensive per Kg as the new lambs in the UK are still small and juicy so you pay the same for less meat.

Comparing chalk with cheese here though.
NZ being in the southern hemisphere, It's not the same time of the year for a start, so six weeks back or so, when these were vacuum packed and sent here the lamb was at the height of the season in good supply, whereas British Lamb is either too old, or very young at the moment, so at something around it's maximum prices.

Transported in bulk ships is nothing like the most expensive means of travel either, in the same way it's cheaper to ship electronics around the world too rather than produce them here!

While I am a big fan of NZ lamb, it's not quite the premium priced product that British lamb is when at it's best, and of course being vacuum packed for weeks, it's also a lot more mature tasting than British sourced lamb, to me that's a bit of a plus, it's also very tender due to that means of storage maturing it longer, but not everyone likes the fuller flavour, it actually tastes of the sheep it is from, but they expect blander under-mature meat, like everything else is these days, insipid :-(

Yes, some very likely reasons, possibly also relates not to NOW but when Tesco bought it... that could have been WELL in advance when the contracts were made - just in the same way that here farmers are making deals for their produce with supermarkets many months in advance, and outside of normal market influences

How much would this make an average leg?

on an average cost this would make a lamb cost approx £1.80 per Kg. But that includes good bits (loin and rump/saddle) decent cuts like legs, cheaper cuts such as shoulder, really cheap bits that go into mince, delicacies like offal, heads and eyes etc, bits that go into pet food and the discards such as spinal chord and bones.

so you could probably say a 2 kg leg costs about £7 in pure meat. THe balance is whatever it costs to kill, butcher, hang, package and transport, plus supermarket profit. So 4.49 a Kg is a good deal, I suspect a loss leader for someone.

My 1.6kg leg was £7.30

Stated to feed 5-6 people, so should do four nicely.

It does seem to include british lamb as well at the same price as I bought both today.
