Australian lamb market strong market TALK Richard Bailey THERE was plenty of good news in livestock markets during the week with firm to better prices for almost all categories. We saw the first of the new season's lambs at Quoiba and they all sold very well to local butchers. Old lambs also sold to stronger demand at all cen- tres. After good numbers at Quoiba on Monday there were very small numbers at Killafaddy on Tuesday, which probably indicates we are getting to the end of the over-supply of heavy lambs we have endured for the past couple of months. Good-quality heavy lambs are selling for $135 to $168 and trade lambs made $123 to $140 a head. There are more new lambs coming into the northern Victorian mar- kets. It is the stage of the season where one major supermarket actually bought new-season lambs in Victoria to be killed in Tasmania this week. This comes around be- cause we won't see any decent numbers of new lambs for another couple of months. The MLA figures re- leased last week showed lamb exports in August jumped 22 per cent year- on-year to 14,087 tonnes, bringing the total for the calendar year to 103,333 tonnes -- 5 per cent higher than the same period in 2010. The key factor resulting in this increase was the large rise in lamb slaugh- ter through July and August compared with 2010, with average weekly slaughter in the eastern states around 13,000 higher than last year. The lift in lamb exports throughout August was re- flected across all of Aust- ralia's major lamb markets, with shipments growing to the Middle East (up 15 per cent to 3621 tonnes), Greater China (up 26 per cent to 2498 tonnes), the US (up 23 per cent to 2419 tonnes), the EU (up 14 per cent to 1012 tonnes) and PNG (up 28 per cent to 1011 tonnes). MLA says ''the limited global supply of lamb con- tinues to have an influence on demand for Australian product and helps main- tain strong saleyard prices and processor activity in Australia''. The Greater China fig- ure is the interesting one, with their volume overtak- ing the amount sent to the US, which has been our main lamb export desti- nation for years. The volumes going into the Middle East are also very encouraging. Australian beef ship- ments during August were again underpinned by ex- port growth to emerging and smaller markets, along with Korea. Exports for the month were steady year-on-year at 81,663 tonnes as trade conditions with Aust- ralia's two largest markets, Japan and the US, re- mained very tough. One of the standout mar- kets for our beef continues to be Korea, with exports for August increasing 14 per cent year-on-year to 12,202 tonnes. There were also increases to Russia (up 66 per cent), the Middle East (up 14 per cent), Ta- iwan (up 52 per cent) and the EU (up 48 per cent). Welcomed lift in Bridgewater prices BRIDGEWATER saw a heavier yarding of cattle on Monday with a signifi- cant lift in prices for all lines. There were 71 cattle of- fered, 25 more than the last sale. Lamb numbers at 470 were 200 down on last week. There was a yarding of 160 mutton, the light supply sold to recent firm rates. The 22 two-tooths sold to keen bidding. All cattle sold to keen demand from local butchers and two proces- sors.
