Lamb slaughter lagging, and likely to continue

The latest Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) release of the November sheep and lamb slaughter data offered few surprises. The weekly slaughter data released by Meat and Livestock Australia has opened up at very similar levels to last year. There is likely to be some tightening to come however, at least for sheep.

US China trade deal - abridged

Mid-January saw China and the USA sign off on phase one of a new trade deal, using pre trade war volumes from 2017 as a benchmark for expansion in trade volumes. While it is still early days in the negotiation a key aim of the Trump administration is to get China to import more US agricultural products, with US beef and pig farmers excited by this prospect.

Lamb exports ease, but mutton posts a strong end to 2019

The end of one year and beginning of the next is always a tumultuous time for markets, with holidays and ending financial years for some of our customers requiring a careful balancing of stocks. The December release of the Department of Agriculture’s trade statistics shows that while lamb export consignments eased for a second consecutive month, mutton volumes finished the year in a robust fashion.

Trading Merino Lambs

Last week we took a look at the margins on feeding crossbred lambs, which raised a query from a reader. They are interested in trading Merino lambs, which have the added income of a fleece of wool but must be held for much longer to take advantage of this.

Livestock threatened by NSW and Victorian fires

Fires have swept across large areas within Victoria and NSW in the last month. While much of these zones are forested there are still areas within these regions that contain a significant number of cattle and sheep. It is early days to estimate livestock losses in these areas, but this article puts a figure on the total livestock population currently under threat.
