Punting Lamb

We present in clear, readable terms how to understand the risky aspects of a ewe purchase decision. Expected lamb prices in the future are an important driver of ewe prices now. We derive easy methods of determining the relationship between future lamb prices and current ewe prices. This lends to an evaluation of rules of thumb showing that the 'bet' and the 'odds' are keys to good investment.
