US China trade deal - abridged

Mid-January saw China and the USA sign off on phase one of a new trade deal, using pre trade war volumes from 2017 as a benchmark for expansion in trade volumes. While it is still early days in the negotiation a key aim of the Trump administration is to get China to import more US agricultural products, with US beef and pig farmers excited by this prospect.

Supply, demand or both

Export prices dampen upside but still plenty

It’s been some time since the 7 day precipitation forecast has looked so promising, and we are even starting to see some impact at the yards. As we wait to see if the rains will indeed arrive, we’ll take a look at movements in export markets, as it might have stripped some of the potential upside out of the market.

Beef exports finish 2019 on a high

Continued strong demand for beef from China during December saw total Australian beef export volumes end the season on a high. Growth in Chinese demand for Australian beef across 2019 has been substantial enough to unseat Japan from their position as the number one destination.

Drought paradox remains in place

The headline numbers for the southern weaner sales look good, but the ‘drought paradox’, where heavy cattle are more expensive in ¢/kg than light ones remains firmly in place. However, with the Eastern Young Cattle Indicator (EYCI) likely to open lower, vendors can be rightfully happy with prices.
