Culling in the name of…

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) release of the May slaughter figures shows we are still culling record numbers of female cattle as a proportion of total slaughter.

As we move into the new financial year, grain prices have found a bit of strength. Winter is largely yet to see the traditional rally in feeder cattle prices.

Processor margins ease, but only slightly

Processor margins remain at extremely profitable levels this month with meat works enjoying the benefits of robust beef export prices and a falling Australian dollar, which is helping to lift demand and prices for most categories of beef co-products.
