Record Grainfed prices matched by feeder values

Despite record numbers of cattle on feed at the end of June, grainfed cattle prices have hit a new record. The stronger demand for grainfed cattle and cheaper grain prices are also flowing through to feeder values, and leaving a little in it for lotfeeders.

Higher slaughter projected then comes the drop

Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) released their herd projection update last week. The dry weather and consistently high slaughter has driven some revisions in slaughter projections. The closing herd for 2018 did come in higher than expected, which has bolstered slaughter estimates for the coming years.

Liquidation phase looming for US herd

A fourth successive month with the Australian Bureau of Statistics cattle data showing the female slaughter ratio (FSR) coming in above 58% signals continued destocking across Australia. An elevated female cattle slaughter ratio in the USA is pointing to a downturn in the herd there too and the beginning of their destocking phase, albeit to a lesser magnitude to what we are experiencing locally.

Dry spells profit for processors

The updated Mecardo industry processor margin model shows that meat works profitability has continued to soften in recent months for beef processing, reducing by 48% from the peaks achieved in May 2019. However, despite the narrowing, margin processor’s bottom line remains in good shape with the annual average margin sitting over five times higher than last season.
