Beef Central’s new podcast series, The Weekly Grill launches today, with host Kerry Lonergan turning up the heat on beef processor, lotfeeder and beef producer Terry Nolan in the first episode.

In this announcement yesterday, Beef Central introduced Kerry, a veteran agricultural broadcaster well known to most Beef Central readers,  who worked with ABC’s Landline national industry current affairs program for the past 30 years.

The Weekly Grill podcast series is brought to readers with the support of Elanco Animal Health.

Each week, Kerry will sit down with an industry identity to chew the fat on topical matters across the meat and livestock industry.

In today’s first episode, he asks Terry Nolan about the current challenging conditions faced by meat processors, Australian beef’s global competitiveness, herd rebuilding, the direction being taken by MSA, the labour challenge, potential for automation in agriculture and other topics.

    Great interview from good industry figures. Cattle price data, that is in decline, is the root cause of the producer v processor margin swings in the industry. To compete on the international stage, this is critical to sort out but the industry isn’t working on this. Best to ask industries like cotton and sugar about the benefit of forward prices. Without price data recording and sharing the industry is weak and at unnecessary risk.
