Over 20,000 lambs exported to Italy and Croatia.
The four slaughterhouses in Gostivar, Novo Selo, Strumica and Kavadarci have exported over 20,000 lambs to Italy and Croatia for the Catholic Christmas and expect to earn more than 10 million euros.
The Gostivar slaughterhouse of Gorni PologGV sold over 4,000 Sar Planina lambs of 400 tons to Italy in about ten days and expects to generate some 2 million euros.
"We are satisfied with the export but not with the fetched price. The price for the first class was 5.70 euros, for the second 5.30 euros and for the third 4.80 euros per kg," says Ruse Stefanovski, a co-owner of the Gostivar slaughterhouse.
In relation to previous years in December, when 70 percent of the sold lambs were of the first, 20 percent of the second and 10 percent of the third class, this year, some 50 percent of the exported lamb was of the first class.
