TAS Country : February 9th 2012
28 Tasmanian Country Friday, February 10, 2012 News Growth in lamb export market to continue THE size of the Australian lamb flock is expected to grow this year --- but lamb prices are not expected to reach last year's record levels. Meat and Livestock Australia this week projected export markets will continue to grow. MLA's chief economist Tim McRae said with consecutive good seasons in the eastern states and drought- breaking rain in Western Australia the sheep flock would continue its early steps toward rejuvenation in 2012. Lamb supplies will increase; there- fore prices are expected to be lower than the record levels reached last year. However, continued strong de- mand, particularly from export mar- kets, should continue the good returns for producers. High-feed availability in 2012 will have many producers weighing up the opportunity to turn lambs off at heavier weights versus shifts in stock- ing and lambing rates. Mr McRae said the increases in returns to Australian lamb producers had largely been driven by growing demand in export markets, particularly the Middle East and China. Lamb exports now generate a much higher proportion of income than in previous years, with a record 48.5 per cent of total lamb production sent off shore in 2011. The Middle East was the largest export market with 34,893 ton- nes swt (22 per cent), followed by the US, 21 per cent, and China, 18 per cent. These markets are expected to con- tinue to grow. landmarkharcourts.com.au 187 Brisbane St, Launceston Ph (03) 6331 6118 2076100-120210 "Boobyalla Downs" North East Tasmania Enquiries to Nick Mainwaring M: 0419 372 793 E: email@example.com 2,215.09 acres -- 896.8 hectares Large easy to run productive grazing property located in the well renowned farming district of Tomahawk in North East Tasmania.
