S3 Ep1: Cattle market update, with Chris Howie & Matt Dalgleish

Welcome back to the 2023 third series of Beef Central podcasts, the Weekly Grill, with host Kerry Lonergan.

Matt Dalgleish

Today’s season-opening interview is a start-of-year assessment of the cattle and beef markets for 2023 with regular commentators, Stockco’s Chris Howie and Ep3’s Matt Dalgleish.

Chris Howie

The pair discuss the 2023 year and what lies ahead: the dramatic adjustments in slaughter and young cattle prices seen since the start of the year; weather impacts with a forecast return to El Nino by mid-year; the effect of the US drought on demand for Australian beef in international markets and other potential headwinds and tailwinds.

Next week’s episode 2 will be an interview with MLA managing director Jason Strong.

    Well done!
    You fellows gave me a good snap shot of what is happening now and ahead.Also – having sheep and lambs discussed was a bonus
    Surely our Govt must get off it’s backside and mandate some training paths for Aussie’s who have time on their hands and a degree of fitness. That is – if they continue not to let migrants in!
