A lot of cattle on feed making not much money.

Earlier in the week we looked at the growing numbers of cattle on feed and surmised it was likely due to dry weather forcing cattle into feedlots. In this article, we take our semi-regular look at lotfeeder margins, and it’s not suggesting a lot of upside for feeder cattle values, especially in the south.

Buyers frustrated at dwindling Hay stock levels.

The Hay game has changed so much. At the starting point of the "frenzy" back at the end of January, there was ten parcels of Hay for every producer looking to buy, today it would be ten producers fighting it out for a single parcel, that's how it's changed.

Cattle on feed bounce back above 1 million.

Cattle lotfeeders seem to have tried to take advantage of harvest to load up feedlots in the March quarter. By the end of March, the number of cattle on feed had risen back above the magic 1 million head mark, and just managed to slip into second place on the all-time rankings.

To feed, agist or sell depends on your weather outlook.

The dry In New South Wales continues, with little relief in sight. With winter approaching, many cattle producers will be forced into the decision of whether to feed cattle through, sell cattle or put out on agistment in areas which have been lucky enough to score some rain recently. Today we have a look at how the different strategies compare, and how much cattle might cost to buy back in when it does rain.

A big month in beef export… in a relative sense.

We’ve been banging on about stronger cattle slaughter in response to dry weather for a while now. The stronger slaughter has now translated into stronger exports, with April defying the usual trend and putting up some big numbers.

Price rises and premiums for Hay.

Demand for hay remains strong, with the majority of enquiry coming out of New South Wales. Considering the pressure we've seen over the last few weeks, it's not surprising that supply levels are dropping.

We found some good news for cattle.

It’s not rain, and Matt’s article from last week tells us that we might be waiting a while for that, but the old friend and foe of export commodities, the Aussie dollar. The Aussie has made a move lower over the last fortnight and as such, it’s a good time to review export prices and how much support the lower AUD may offer cattle markets.

More slaughter this year, but same later.

Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) released their quarterly projections this week, and while there were some revisions to this year’s projections, the next three years are expected to be largely the same as was projected in January. The herd growth is expected to be a little weaker, but it’s not really showing up in slower herd growth based on the MLA figures.

Impact of a failed Southern break.

Beef producers and cattle prices have been suffering under a dry April. However, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) have released their rainfall forecast for the next three months, which signals a return to relatively normal conditions for much of the nation as we head toward Winter. This article takes a look at what a return to average rainfall may mean for the Eastern Young Cattle Indicator (EYCI) and what may be in stall if the Autumn rains don’t come to the South.
