Hay Market just a reflection of the overall Domestic Feed Market

It's extreme times in the Feed and Fodder Markets. Some that have been in the game for many years haven't seen it like this before; such is the volatility and uncertainty.

A reversal of fortune for WA producers.

The first quarter of 2018 was characterised by above normal price behaviour for many categories of lamb and sheep in Western Australia when compared to the Eastern markets. However, uncertainty surrounding the live sheep export trade has seen the situation reverse since April, placing WA producers at a distinct price disadvantage to their Eastern neighbours.

Rising sheep slaughter will lead to flock flop.

With all the fanfare around record lamb prices week after week, the mutton market has been pushed into the background. It’s fair enough, mutton prices have weakened, as they generally do in dry times, and this doesn’t make for great headlines. With slaughter rates as they are, we’ll see the headlines when it finally does rain.

Lamb and sheep spreads across the states.

Price volatility, market uncertainty and climate variability across regions can play havoc with the normal seasonal spread behaviour between categories of sheep and lamb. With the Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) coming off record highs, the ongoing live sheep export issues facing WA producers and dry conditions affecting NSW producers we thought it time to assess the state of play with regards to state spread behaviour for a range of categories of lamb and sheep.

Export markets continue to drive lamb demand.

We have been talking for a while about lamb export markets driving the record lamb prices at saleyards. The latest export figures and export values show a squeeze on exporters, but interestingly, things have been tighter in the past.

Lamb Economics 101

In last week’s piece on deflated lamb prices, we mentioned that the underlying reason behind the increased lamb prices we have seen since 2000 has been increasing demand. This analysis highlights the lamb demand curve and shows why prices have risen despite increasing levels of lamb slaughter and production.

Any quality Hay out there has a 3 in front of the price.

Prices of good quality hay jumped considerably in the last fortnight with most worth around or beyond $300 right now. But the fact of the matter is that many of these parcels are not out there or are unattainable.

Quantifying drought impacts on lamb supply.

We’ve been commenting for weeks on the impact the dry weather in New South Wales, Northern South Australia and Victoria is having on the timing of the turnoff of winter sucker lambs. What is even harder to put a number to, is how the dry will impact total lamb supply for 2018. Here we’ll try and put some numbers around it.

Lamb has been more expensive in US terms.

Earlier in the week, we looked at lamb prices in deflated terms, and they are indeed near record highs. We know that export markets are helping drive lamb prices, so it’s worth assessing whether lamb importers are also forking out record dollars for lamb.
