Scottish Venison prices


Well-Known Member
Hi, Has anyone put a hind into Scottish venison gamedealers this week and could you tell me what they are paying at the minute please? I have a bill to settle for two carcasses and I dont know what to pay.

Many thanks

Locally here in the Lake District a dealer from Lancashire is collecting and paying £1.20 per pound for Reds.

£1.20 per pound? We only get £1/lb for roe and 50p/lb for red. It's not worth dragging them off the hill half the time. £1.20 would be fantastic! It might even cover my diesel. That's Scotland by the way and the price hasn't changed in the last 10 years at least

I have just done a deal to provide a min of 75 roe or 50 red/fallow at £4.00 a kilo to be supplied over 12 months!
This is too a farm shop, it seems more and more butchers are being asked for quality venison by their customers, and are looking to go direct rather than through the game dealers.
Might be worth doing a bit of leg work and find some new outlets.
