Making lamb exports great again

He claims credit for most good news, so I’m surprised Trump hasn’t been seeking recognition from Aussie lamb producers for his role in improving trade flows from Australia to the USA since the start of 2019.

How much upside for lambs?

Lamb supply continues to run at strong levels which is keeping a lid on prices. We continue to hear anecdotal evidence around disastrous scanning rates, and the break in the season is yet to arrive. The consensus is that lamb prices are set for some upside. The question is how far and for how long.

Testing times ahead for WA producers

Last Friday the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) issued a statement on the proposed conditions for the forthcoming live sheep export trade over the Northern hemisphere summer. The live sheep trade is a crucial component of the WA sheep industry, underpinning lamb and sheep prices for producers within this state. Hopefully, the proposal to prohibit the trade over the June to August period won’t have the same price impact as last season.

Lamb price modelling

We’ve been working on upgrading our lamb price forecasting abilities at Mecardo and have recently developed an interactive modelling tool that allows us to forecast the annual average level for the Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) based on key supply and demand inputs. In this analysis we take the model through a test run, playing out a handful of scenarios for the next few years to see the potential impact on lamb prices.

Lamb and sheep slaughter leaving a dearth for later

The weekly sheep and lamb slaughter figures suggest supplies have been strong. The official numbers from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) for January confirm there are more sheep and lambs being killed than last year and that things are likely to change, at some stage.

Export markets the key to ovine pricing

Up until the mid-noughties the Australian lamb market was largely driven by domestic markets. As such there was a limit to how high prices could go before consumers pushed back and moved to other proteins. Recently we have been hearing lambs is getting too expensive at domestic levels, but it appears there are no such problems in the export area. For growers of lamb and mutton this is especially important.

It’s a close call on wool and lambs

It has been a long time coming, and it’s taken record prices, but the profitability of wool enterprises has once again moved ahead of prime lambs businesses. However, it is only when rainfall is taken into account, and it’s a close call so don’t expect prime lamb producers to flip back to Merinos just yet.

January records smashed for lamb exports

Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) trade statistics for January show a 15.6% year on year increase in lamb exports and the gains in mutton export flows aren’t far behind, up 15% on January 2018. Despite posting similar volume gains, a breakdown of key destinations for the lamb and mutton export trade shows that the growth in demand is being driven from different regions.
