The last couple of months have seen Australian cattle prices surge to unprecedented levels. Strong demand fundamentals, particularly in our key markets, and the expected tightening in Australian supplies, bode well for a continuation of this good fortune. 

So, how far could cattle markets go?  What risks are there? And what’s likely to happen if El Nino eventuates?

In this webinar, Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) Manager Market Information, Ben Thomas, will outline MLA's cattle projections for the next five years.  Mecardo analyst, Augusto Semmelroth, will then take a look at what these projections might mean for cattle prices down the track.

During this webinar you will learn about:

  • Key drivers of the cattle market over the next five years
  • Risks and opportunities in the market
  • Likely impact of El Nino on cattle markets
  • Price outlook for Australian cattle markets
