Beef markets

Weekly market overview

  • The England and Wales liveweight auction market data reported on this webpage is licensed by the Livestock Auctioneers Association (LAA), who have made the decision to take direct control of the creation, publication, and dissemination of this data. 
  • From 1 January 2024, liveweight auction market data will no longer be available via the AHDB website. The responsibility for producing England and Wales market data is being moved by LAA to a third-party data partner, with AHDB ceasing to cleanse or aggregate this data. As part of this change, AHDB will be unable to publish Scottish or GB data or provide cleansed data to licensed publishers and users.

  • AHDB will continue to provide independent expert analysis of the domestic livestock industry through our regular publications, analysis, data and outlooks. AHDB will explore how more insight on liveweight prices and throughputs can be provided in the future for levy payers.
