While the report has highlighted that demand growth for Australia's largest dairy export --- cheese --- will slow, there are positive signs for its by- product whey. Rabobank Global Dairy Outlook report Show me the money has forecast world dairy demand to grow at 2.5 per cent a year --- something the bank de- scribed as the envy of the food world. Rabobank senior dairy analyst Michael Harvey said Australia and New Zealand were well placed to take advantage of grow- ing demand for dairy from the Asia-Pacific region. ''If you have got the global market growing at 2.5 per cent every year, that's enormous growth with plenty of opportunity . . . there is a question about whether the market will deliver that percent- age, but there is no doubt there is a market there,'' Mr Harvey said. ''Globally there is strong demand and plenty of opportunity for the industry to grow again.'' Mr Harvey's farmgate milk price prediction was based on whole milk pow- der trading on inter- national markets from $US3300 to $US3800 a tonne and an Australian dollar at parity with the US green- back. He said $4.50/kg of milk solids was the floor in the market and the ''absolute worst-case scenario'' while the level of the Australian dollar would have an im- pact on this range. The report said the pos- ition of dairy farmers had generally improved, be- cause of the unprecedented leap in farmgate milk prices, but in essence money flowing throughout the dairy supply chain in recent years had been eaten-up by input costs for farmers or capitalised into the value of farmland. Fonterra last month lift- ed Tasmanian farmgate milk prices by 8c/kg of butterfat and 20c/kg of protein (13c/kg for milk solids) which was backdat- ed to July 1 last year. Meanwhile, Gippsland processor Longwarry Food Park on Monday an- nounced its second milk price step-up for the season of 7c/kg of butterfat and 17c/kg of protein. Dairy giant Murray Goulburn also announced a boost to its suppliers' milk cheques last week with a rise of 8c/kg butter- fat and 20c/kg protein. Global price call, P16 Solid butcher demand at Quoiba AN average yarding of 234 cattle met buyers at the weekly Quoiba sale on Wednesday. The light offering of Jap Ox met demand similar of past sales to see a top of 185c/kg. Heavy trade steers top- ped at 200c/kg and local trade steers topped at 217c/kg. Another good line up of vealers sold to solid butcher demand to see a top of 224c/kg, with most 200c to 216c/kg. Trade heifers met solid competition to see a top of 220c/kg and most 195c to 210c/kg. Heavy vealers were in good supply and saw a sale top of 230c/kg. Chopper cows were in demand with strong ex- porter competition push- ing prices to a top of 144c/kg for best beef types and 140c/kg for the best dairy cows. Heavy beef bulls sold to 138c/kg and dairy to 135c/kg. BULLOCKS: D L&ALR o - gers, 185c/kg-$1050; MW & ML Mace, 180c/kg-$1069; D & T Heineke, 180c/kg-$1072.

It is not all gloom and doom for beef RICHARD BAILEY THERE is a wide range of factors that are affecting markets at the moment with plenty of discussion around a very high Aussie dollar, no drop in interest rates and of course Gary Lethborg producing the best pork sausage in Aust- ralia. Well done to Lethborg Smallgoods, it is a great achievement to be recog- nised Australia-wide for producing a top quality product and one would hope that it will result in some great interstate sales. Our dollar has crept close to 108c compared to the US dollar, which is almost 15 per cent higher than a few months ago and will have an impact on our export prices. There are other factors that may counter the nega- tives. The flood up north will have an impact on supply of cattle into North- ern NSW and Queensland meat works and as a result prices in Southern Aust- ralia will be protected to an extent in the short term. We saw improvements in bullock and cow prices in Victorian markets through the week with most bullocks making 177c to 194c/kg while manufac- turing types sold for 162c to 173c/kg. Cow prices at Pakenham were 2c to 4c/kg higher, with best heavy cows mak- ing 137c to 158c/kg while heavy 2 score cows made 129c to 149c/kg, liveweight. It is interesting to note that the US cattle herd has fallen to the lowest level since 1952 with the 2.1 per cent decline over the past year being largely attri- buted to severe drought conditions across the southern states and associ- ated higher turnoff. Of the cattle categories reported, the main decline was in beef cows which shrunk 3.1 per ent while ''other heifers'' declined 2 per cent. Two other figures also of significance for the me- dium term outlook for the US beef industry was the increase in the number of heifers retained as beef cow replacements, up 1.4 per cent to 5.2 million head, along with a 1.1 per cent decline in the calf drop for 2011. While the increase in replacement heifer num- bers indicates that the herd decline may stabilise in the coming year, it also means fewer heifers will be available for slaughter. The decline in the calf drop will maintain the tight cattle market con- ditions. These figures are good news for our exporters and in turn producers selling cows and lean beef.
