The last couple of months have seen Australian cattle prices surge to unprecedented levels. Strong demand fundamentals, particularly in our key markets, and the expected tightening in Australian supplies, bode well for a continuation of this good fortune. So, how far could cattle markets go?  What risks are there? And what’s likely to happen if El Nino eventuates?  In this webinar, MLA's Ben Thomas joined Mecardo's Augusto Semmelroth to outline MLA's latest industry projections and what they mean for cattle prices.
