MLA - Prices and Markets

Friday Feedback


Welcome to the second edition of MLA’s new weekly Prices & Markets e-newsletter – providing the very latest red meat market news and analysis direct to your inbox.

This week we will take a look at how live exports are tracking across cattle, sheep and goats and some of the in-market factors impacting demand. We also offer a detailed analysis of the growth of Australian premium lamb in the Middle East and the outlook for New Zealand sheepmeat production.

We will also hear how some producers are utilising customised market information and data on the MLA website – and the role it can play in running a more effective business.

Thanks for all the feedback on the first edition, please keep it coming - feel free to drop me an email.
