Demand shift adding plenty of value to mutton

While sheep supply isn’t quite at the peaks of last year, it is at an 8 month high, and spring usually signals price lows. At the moment, mutton prices in saleyards and over the hooks are not far off record highs. In this article we try and illustrate the relatively rapid shift in demand.

Lamb prices driving land prices

Recently there have been plenty of reports regarding rising land prices despite the drought. Where there hasn’t been drought this spring has brought even stronger price rises. In Western Victoria and South East South Australia some land values have doubled in the last five years. There are plenty of questions being asked about whether money can be made at these levels. Here are the back of the envelope calculations.

Saleyard to OTH (after costs)

In late October we looked at the spread behaviour between saleyard and over the hooks (OTH) prices for national lamb markets, focusing in on the general trend in price/spread movements. A keen-eyed Mecardo subscriber noted on social media that we didn’t account for agent commission or other costs in our analysis and that if we did OTH would “win easily”, but that wasn’t the focus for the October piece – it is for this one though.

NZ sheep flock posts an increase

Beef and Lamb NZ report an expected increase to the New Zealand total adult sheep flock for the first time since 2012 in their most recent stock number survey results. Is this a signal that the offshore sheepmeat market is going to get more competitive for Australia?

New Year ovine pricing pegged at a record

Last Thursday we got a look at the first sheep and lamb forward contract for the Christmas/New Year period. Admittedly, the contracts were for just one site in Northern NSW, but it at least gives a reference point that other processors might be working off.

Are OTH trade lamb prices lagging the saleyard too much?

A Mecardo subscriber recently queried the spread behaviour between saleyard and over the hooks (OTH) pricing for lamb markets. Their concern was that OTH prices weren’t really keeping pace with saleyard levels over the last season. This analysis looks at recent trends for national trade lamb saleyard versus OTH prices and spreads.
