Scottish prime cattle finishers should not be too worried that prices down south have risen more in the past month than they have here, according to Stuart Ashworth, head of economics services with Quality Meat Scotland.
His analysis of the market showed that caution was needed when considering average price movements.
He concluded that, over the past month, the quality of cattle marketed in England and Wales had improved.
He added that the average grade of beef cattle in Scotland was better than in England and Wales and the mix of quality of cattle reaching Scottish abattoirs had remained more consistent than in England and Wales.
