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.

Where are the winter lambs coming from?

Winter officially arrives next week, and with it, we expect lamb slaughter to decline from recent record highs. Traditionally lamb supply throughout the winter is sustained by the last of the old season lambs, and the arrival of new season spring lambs out of NSW in the second half of July. With the dry continuing, we ask whether these lambs will finished on time, and whether they’ll be there at all.

Thank NZ for strong export lamb demand.

We recently had a query as to whether there was much seasonality in New Zealand lamb slaughter. We have covered this before, but given New Zealand are our only major competitor in lamb export markets, it’s worth another visit.

Record slaughter weights in NSW despite the dry.

It’s an interesting paradox that during a very dry summer Australian, and in particular New South Wales, lamb producers have managed to produce lambs of record weights. The data to March shows rising lamb slaughter weights, adding further impetus to the increasing demand story.

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.

Robust exports for sheepmeat a positive sign.

It’s a pretty good sign for a market when production is running strong, yet prices remain at very good levels. Such is the case with lamb and mutton so far this year. Exports of lamb and mutton were down on last month, but much stronger than this time last year, suggesting overseas consumers are happy to take plenty of product at current prices.

Lambs still coming, but can it continue?

The latest Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) slaughter data was released last week, and it confirmed what was suspected in terms of lamb slaughter. March lamb slaughter was the second highest for that month on record, and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) slaughter data suggests April is going to be similarly strong. This week we ask, can the lambs keep coming?

Sheep flock projections.

The preliminary ABS flock estimate for the 2016-17 season shows an increase of 4% on the previous season. This increase appears to be larger than conditions suggest should have occurred. This article takes another look at the Australian flock size with some modelled projections for the next couple of seasons.

Should we put all our sheep eggs in one basket?

We had a query last week on the correlation of wool and sheepmeat prices. The gist of the question was whether it is possible to diversify a business by having wool producing Merino sheep, and also producing lambs for meat production. Here we attempt to put some numbers around sheep diversification.
