Quotes from our Mid-Season Update:

It’s hard to believe we’re already midway through the production season Down Under. The turmoil of 2016 continues to influence international meat trade, with Brexit, weather, and geopolitics impacting both supply and demand. A late Spring meant a slow start to the season…


The New Zealand Beef + Lamb Economic Service’s Outlook for 2017 forecasts little change in overall exports based on a 3% decrease in lamb offset by an increase in beef cattle of 2.8%. Farmers’ confidence levels are split with cattle ranchers’ confidence relatively higher than their sheep counterparts.
