Mutton to lose

Last week we ran some forecast scenarios for the ESTLI based on a Covid-19 inspired impact on global growth. This analysis follows up in a similar theme, looking at what a global financial style cut to the economic growth of our key trading partners would do to the National Mutton Indicator.

A tale of two panic attacks

The Black Swan that is Covid 19 is playing havoc with all markets, but it is the local livestock markets are interested in. Compared to some, red meat has been relatively well spared, with recent rain and lack of stock providing a buffer. We have seen some panic, and its causing a wide spread between the lamb categories.

Restockers not uncertain

We know not uncertain is a double negative, but it’s better than saying ‘Restockers are certain’. The point we are trying to illustrate is that it appears that while there is some concern starting to creep in over finished lamb prices, restockers are still paying record rates.

ESTLI forecast under a Covid-19 hit to global growth

The Covid-19 virus is making forecasting difficult, only a fortnight ago we released an Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) forecast for the 2020 season. However, a sharp crash in the Australian dollar and concerns on the impact to global growth and sheepmeat demand has meant a further analysis piece was needed to cover how this may play out for prices should the situation continue to deteriorate.

How did the GFC impact lamb

It has been a dramatic week on stock markets, with the oil crash and ongoing Covid19 concerns seeing world stock markets declining to a degree reminiscent of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC). If like us, you can’t remember what the GFC did to sheep and lamb markets, it’s time for some revision.

Oil be damned

May you live in interesting times. A phrase which absolutely applies to 2020. As well as Coronavirus, we are also an ‘oil war’ between OPEC nations. This has resulted in big moves in the oil industry.

Not all beer and skittles for sheepmeat exports to China

The release of Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment (DAWE) trade statistics for February show a bit of a Corona virus (Covid19) impact for Australian sheepmeat exports to China. However, a look at the broader export market shows it still remains robust.

Rising on farm costs negate strong prices in 18-19

In terms of prices and sheep farm incomes in Victoria, the 2018-19 financial year was pretty close to 2017-18. However, as we delve a bit deeper into the Agriculture Victoria Livestock Farm Monitor Project (LFMP) we can see that rising costs took a little of the shine off gross margins, but farm profitability was still very good.
