Restocker lambs hitting records for a reason

All lamb prices are streaking upwards but some are higher than others, in a relative sense. This year, restockers have some serious confidence in where prices are going to spend the next months. This article takes a look at why and how lamb feeders are paying record money for restocker lambs.

Mutton leading the charge to new heights

This time of the season we expect to see sheep and lamb prices testing higher and the National Mutton Indicator (NMI) hasn’t disappointed, reaching record heights last week of 544¢/kg cwt. The Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) has been pushing northward too but is yet to beat it’s 2018 winter peak of 884¢/kg cwt. What can the historic seasonal pattern tell us about this year’s peak for the NMI and ESTLI?

NSW lambs not coming to the fore

Lamb markets have been moving higher, but not in all states. For some time we have been talking about the lack of lambs in NSW and it seems to be coming to the fore. History tells us the other states are going to catch up shortly.

Asian appetite for mutton holds firm

Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) trade statistics for April were recently released, revealing that the above average flow of mutton product leaving Australia persists. Analysis of the key trade destinations highlights that Asian demand continues to underpin the total mutton consignments. This piece reviews the impact on mutton prices over the next few years if the Asian demand continues to grow in line with an expanding Chinese middle class.

Record mutton prices but is there more

Earlier in the year, we made the not so bold prediction that Mutton prices would hit new records. With slaughter declining sharply, the National Mutton Indicator has indeed reached a record, which now begs the question, can it go higher?

Live sheep export phase out and its impact upon the East (Part 2)

Last week we demonstrated that the live sheep export trade underpinned sheep prices in West Australia, without which, the prices would be significantly discounted to the east. However, we also showed that when the price differential between the west and east coast was wide enough, sheep started getting shipped across the Nullarbor. This analysis models the impact on east coast mutton prices should large sheep numbers arrive from the west if the trade is phased out.

Would a phase out of live sheep trade impact the East? (Part 1)

Average monthly live sheep export volumes have been running below the five-year trend for the first quarter of 2019 and we are approaching the northern hemisphere summer period where numbers exported are expected to halt entirely. The prospect of an Australian Labor Party (ALP) win and a phase out of the live sheep trade looms, should this be a concern for Eastern producers?

Will 830¢ be enough in July?

There has been plenty of commentary around winter lamb supplies and how the expected dearth will see prices rally. With the season panning out in a similar fashion to last year, the best forward price we have seen of 830¢ was released by Coles last week for July. No doubt it is a good price, but the question being asked is whether it will be high enough.
