MLA - Prices and Markets

Friday Feedback


Welcome to the latest 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 have our first 'state market watch' article looking at key movements in the Victorian market. This type of article will be a monthly feature rotating across the country and providing you more local insights and analysis. We also take a look at the latest Bureau of Meteorology three-month outlook and explore recent movements in the Brazilian beef industry and the potential implications for Australia.

Closer to home, we hear from producer Chris Murphy on improving grassfed market compliance and we get to know MLA’s Livestock Market Officer, Krystelle Ridley.

Thank you for continuing to support this publication and please feel free to drop me an email with any feedback.
