NORTHERN Tablelands Local Land Services has scheduled a series of four market update seminars across the NSW New England region later this month, featuring meat trade analyst Simon Quilty as guest speaker.
Cattle and sheep producers are invited to attend the free seminars, titled “Mapping Australia’s livestock future.”
As Australia’s cattle industry enters a new price cycle, Mr Quilty will discuss how this is likely to unfold. He has extensively researched the factors that will drive livestock prices higher over the next four years, and will discuss global demand and supply factors and how these will be reflected in Australia’s livestock prices (both lamb and beef) in coming years.
Mr Quilty is a regular commentator on Beef Central.
Also speaking will be Northern Tablelands Local Land Services Livestock Officer (Sheep) Brent McLeod, who will discuss the sheep market outlook.
The schedule for the upcoming seminars is as follows:
- Walcha Golf Club – Tuesday 13 November
- Glen Innes Showground Tearooms – Wednesday 14 November
- Inverell Rugby Club – Thursday 15 November
- Tenterfield Bowling Club – Friday 16 November.
All seminars will start at 6pm, for a 9pm finish.
