    Abstract : Fat sheep prices since 1971 have not shown the traditional seasonal pattern that was evident in the 1960s. The change is mainly attributed to the increasing importance of the export market in relation to UK production of mutton and lamb. The French market has become particularly important, and UK seasonal price patterns have therefore become similar to those in France. There could be even more changes in seasonality patterns if a CAP for sheepmeat comes into operation as this would probably result in an export market for UK lamb all the year round.
