Lamb Prices
In this Monday, Nov. 5, 2012 photo, Jon Cook moves a group of ewes into a neighboring field on his sheep ranch outside Fountain Green, Utah. A year ago, the price of lambs intended for slaughter was soaring to all-time record levels. This year, prices fell so far that one sheepman said "everything went down the toilet." The sheep industry across the West is facing what some consider a crisis, threatening the survival of some ranching operations. (AP Photo/Deseret News, Ben Brewer)
