Record prices and ongoing drought are continuing to squeeze lamb turn-off with low numbers peaking in August.

Livestock manager for Kerr and Co Craig Pertzel says its surprising to see Coles make this move.

"I've never seen $10 written down on a piece of paper before - never. At the moment it's probably comparative.
