Just asking a general question about game dealer prices for venison in D&G.
We have just been told yesterday that the price for roe carcasses has dropped from £2.50 to £2.20/Kilo collected due to market conditions. When we originally started with this dealer a few months ago prices were £3/kilo across the board for all roe so you can see that an 80p/kilo drop is quite significant within the year.
Is anyone aware of reasons that might explain the drop in price or is our game dealer trying it on now that he has us on board? Has anybody heard the same story recently? I can't imagine the market being flooded with roe as I expect the majority of folks would finish their doe cull before the beginning of March?
I just want to be sure that we are being offered a fair price.
Thanks in advance..
