S3 Ep31: Cattle market update, with Chris Howie & Matt Dalgleish


Australian young cattle and slaughter cattle prices have continued to descend during the first eight months of 2023. In this week’s podcast, regular markets commentators, RMA’s Chris Howie and Ep3’s Matt Dalgleish face the big questions: Are we at or near the bottom of the price cycle? What impact will the forecast drier spring have on cattle supply and demand? What are the main drivers?

Are processors going to be able to cope (labour wise) with larger numbers of slaughter cattle? If not, what happens to prices? These and other topics are posed in today’s cattle market update podcast by Weekly Grill host, Kerry Lonergan.

Other topics include the rapidly changing circumstances in the US beef production cycle, the impact of this month’s UK Free Trade Agreement, the log-jam of young cattle in northern Australia caused by the Lumpy Skin Disease regulatory episode, and other potential headwinds and tailwinds.
