Some of the key themes we are seeing in the global beef market

It has been an extraordinary run for feeder steers. It seemed to us that the $5 and $5.40 mark would be barriers but demand has stayed strong. It has not been too much fun on the feedlotting side with wet conditions but the domestic and export markets seem to have stood up to the challenge. Graphs above from Simon Quilty at AgriTrends who stills sees the marketing strengthening through until November (at least).

  • Brazil and Argentina exports are down (Brazil down 3.6% and Argentina down 6.6%) and demand is up. China is leading the charge on buying
  • Japans economy seems to be struggling with negative growth and trim imports are higher as they bring in more trim as other beef products are seemingly too expensive 
  • The USA is still sending a lot to China which has offset the Australian beef export slump.

  • A sign of the times? Consumer companies taking a public stance on carbon. What will this mean for our farms and how we measure carbon?

The future of Agriculture???

  • Chinese Pork Mega-Farm opening in Hubei Province 
  • A 26 floor piggery producing 600K pigs a year!!!


  • Cases are on the rise with Delta virus (as we all well know)
  • Interestingly despite the increase in Delta cases the corresponding deaths per 100K has not yet trended up. Look at the UK in the second graph. Is that the vaccination numbers or the morbidity of the Delta virus keeping deaths low?

We are watching Wyangla Dam closely. This week it has gone from 80% to 89%. Below is Lachlan River at full throttle on Thursday.
