WA farmers lose and animal welfare standards drop

The live sheep export moratorium during the northern hemisphere summer is nearing an end for the 2019 season. Although an extension to the period of the ban announced by the Department of Agriculture in August 2019 saw prices react unfavourably in WA markets. This analysis looks at the impact of the ban on prices in WA, compared to the east coast for trade lamb and mutton over the last few seasons.

Extreme year on year falls in slaughter forecast to continue

Official lamb and sheep slaughter figures for July were released last week, with lamb falling off the cliff in June and July, and sheep easing back. Despite lower slaughter in June and July, lamb and sheep forecasts suggest we’ll be running below last year for most of the rest of the year. We also saw a record for lamb carcase weights come and go, despite tightening supply.

Lamb feeding equation remains tight

Last week we did some analysis on the economics of buying in store lambs to finish on grass, for those lucky enough to have received good winter rainfall. There are plenty of lamb producers in NSW which have mouths but not much grass.The question for them is whether to sell as stores or feed through to finished weights.

At least some of the ovine price rise passed to export markets

Volume and price converged to push export values past the $250 million mark in April, and the appetite for lamb has not waned. Lamb export values hit a new record high in April and in June the unit value headed towards record highs. Meanwhile, mutton values seemed to have come up against a ceiling when broken down into ¢/kg but also broke higher in June, hitting new highs.

Wool prices are crashing, and while still historically strong, yesterday hitting one and a half and two and a half year lows for the 19 and 21MPG’s respectively. The wether flock was already falling, here we take a look at how lower wool and strong sheepmeat prices might see further declines in wether flocks.
