The end of March brought with it another record for cattle feedlots, with numbers on feed hitting a new all-time high. While some of the usual suspects contributed to the record numbers, there were also more surprising trends.

FSR, restockers and cattle prices

Kerry Lonergan, ABC Landline legend and renowned agricultural market commentator, mentioned Mecardo’s use of the female slaughter ratio (FSR) when assessing cattle market dynamics in a recent Landline market report. Mecardo coined the phrase FSR and are keen observers of the interrelationship that exists between the FSR, restocker buying activity and young cattle prices.

Stronger cattle prices should persist

Last week we took a look at Meat and Livestock Australia’s (MLA) latest Cattle Industry Projections, with the headline point being a dramatic fall in supply over the coming years. Tighter supply will always be supportive of prices, and here we try to put a finger on the short and long term price impacts of the coming supply squeeze.

Eating into cattle supplies

The first four months of 2019 have not been great for the Australian cattle herd. We have been talking for some time about the strong slaughter rates, and more importantly, very strong female slaughter rates, and how this might impact the herd. Meat and Livestock Australia’s (MLA) latest industry projections put some numbers on the negative supply impacts we are going to see in the coming years.

Heifer discount has disappeared

Earlier in the week, Mecardo had a look at rampant female slaughter rates. Not only have a large number of females been slaughtered so far this year, but for much of last year, rates were higher than normal as well. Heifers and cows for breeding are going to be in strong demand when the season breaks. Today we look for historical precedents as to what this might do to prices.

Female slaughter ratio at record levels

Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) monthly cattle slaughter data allows us to measure the level of female cattle slaughter as a proportion of total slaughter. The first few months of 2019 has revealed the impact of the dry season on breeding stock, with implications for herd size and heifer prices once climatic conditions improve.

Our exports a drop in Swine Fever Ocean

We have been hearing bits and pieces about African Swine Fever (ASF) spreading across China and other parts of Asia, and it’s starting to have an impact on our markets. We thought it was time to take a look at how ASF is impacting pork production, and why our red meat markets are seeing a benefit.
