The curious case of rising slaughter and prices.

Regular readers will no doubt be aware that we like to base our analysis in basic economic theory. Supply, demand, price, that sort of thing. It also piques the interest when a market behaves in a way contrary to the normal rules, and we’ve seen a bit of that this week.

Rain, rain, don’t go away! Stay around for many days.

The Autumn break has hit the south this week and the rainfall has provided both a lift to spirits and prices. Although, the price gains are somewhat marginal as pressure remains from strong supply of sheep and lamb stemming out of NSW.

Sheep not out there or growers holding strong.

Lambs continue to flow to the market, keeping a lid on prices. However, mutton values have been on the rise and narrowing the gap, as despite the dry weather, the supply of sheep is either not there or being held tight.

Prices regain a foothold despite firmer supply.

National lamb and sheep prices at the sale yard closed the week with small gains, although on a state level the story was more mixed. NSW, Victorian and Tasmanian categories performed relatively well, while SA and WA posted a few declines across their lamb and sheep categories.

It’s a restockers market.

Lamb markets had their usual reaction when prices fall heavily, supply contracted as producers looked for alternatives to selling. Not all prices steadied though, with restocker lambs taking a hit and now looking very cheap.

Delayed Autumn break shakes out some more supply.

Persistent dry conditions, hitting NSW particularly hard, and a delay to the Autumn rains have forced higher than average seasonal yarding levels this week. Lamb and sheep prices are reacting to the higher saleyard numbers accordingly, with declines across all Eastern mainland state categories reported by Meat and Livestock Australia.

Mutton not so cheap now.

There was no post Easter price spike this week, with processors seeming to have their supplies booked up well in advance. Saleyards were well supplied, and the good news, again, is that prices remain relatively strong despite plenty of lambs and sheep being on offer.

Surge in NSW throughput but prices hold.

Anecdotal reports of the lack of rain boosting throughput levels along the East coast, particularly in NSW, are being supported by the yarding numbers this week with a spike in both sheep and lamb throughput noted. Despite the higher offering, prices have remained fairly stable with the Eastern States Trade Lamb Indicator (ESTLI) only 3¢ lower at 612¢/kg cwt and National Mutton managing to gain 2.6% to close at 437¢.

Ovine prices trying to build momentum.

Sheep and lamb prices continued a muted upward trend this week, with increases in values across all trade lamb indicators. Mutton values were also higher, everywhere except WA, and restockers came back to the market for light lambs.

Like lambs to the slaughter.

The broad trend in East coast lamb and sheep slaughter numbers continue to be dominated by NSW and Victorian flows at the moment, with a spike in lamb slaughter in the previous week to levels well above normal, unable to dampen prices too vigorously. Similarly, elevated throughput along the East coast for both lamb and sheep was powerless to inhibit demand, particularly for mutton and Merino lamb.
