Meat-eaters should get ready for some hip-pocket pain, as the price of lamb goes through the roof.

A Victorian record was set in Ballarat yesterday, with extra heavy lambs (over 30kg) selling for $354 a head  

The drought is also having an impact on Bendigo prices with similar lambs selling for 340-dollars on Monday.

The Central Victorian Livestock Exchange price at Ballarat breaks a record that was set in Shepparton only last week.
