The FX effect

A premium subscriber asked us to compare current market highs for lamb and mutton, considering the softer exchange rate to the US, to see if our strong domestic prices are flowing through to record prices being paid by export buyers in their local currency terms. We focused on our two largest export markets for mutton and lamb, the USA and China.

Lamb prices strong for the long haul

How long will the good times last for sheep and lambs? We know both varieties of ovine stock are currently at or close to record values, but can it last? Lamb prices have been on a rising plane for the best part of five years, but supply forecasts suggest they might have to fall at some stage.

Lamb forwards hit the magic $10

The Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) has just broken through 900¢, but at least one buyer thinks prices are headed higher. There were reports last week of forward contracts for August being offered at the magic 1000¢/kg cwt, but will the market get there?

One more late Winter surge for ESTLI

The Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) hit 900¢ late last week and closed 2¢ back above this historic high yesterday. This piece looks at the technical price picture to see if we can manage another probe higher during July or if the rally is all done and dusted for this season.

Fewer ewes in the east, more in the west

There is little doubt the sheep flock is on the wane with the dry weather. The February Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA)/Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) survey offers some insight into the state of the breeding ewe flock. It also gives us some idea why there aren’t many new season lambs expected to hit the market in coming weeks.

Export success making life difficult for local consumers

The growth in Australia’s export markets for lamb and mutton are a credit to our local producers and the efforts of Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) in promoting the industry’s produce across diverse offshore markets. However, the tighter supply of recent years combined with increased overseas demand has fueled price gains for both lamb and mutton at the sale yard and this has filtered through to the retail consumer making the traditional lamb roast less common at the dinner table.

Retail lamb record offering support at yard level

Last week we looked at retail lamb, beef and chicken prices in relation to cattle prices. Record retail lamb prices were somewhat expected, given the saleyard values of the past couple of years, but a little looking back tells us things weren’t too bad for retailers early this year, but they might be a little different now.

Export substitution effect

The percentage price spread premium between the Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) and the National Mutton Indicator (NMI) has been narrowing in recent months. It is not unusual to see this occur during the middle of the season. However, the Mecardo team were wondering how much of an impact the price differential has on Australia’s export volumes of lamb and mutton. Is there any substitution effect at play as the relative price of the two sheep meat exports varies?
