Organic Prime Beef Cattle
Trade for all Cattle continues to remain robust with good returns for producers, the Organic Prime market has been stable for the last month and a half, with outlets looking for supply and very little issue in placing them. Straw and forage remain in short supply and are creating challenges for finishers and breeding herds, hopefully turn out is around the corner.
Organic Cull Cows
A good demand for manufacturing meat has meant that the cow trade remains strong with a high demand for stock. The number of cows coming through the system is typically lower this time of year and it’s this lower level of stock that is keeping the prices where they are.
Lambs continue to trade at surprising levels, and with almost every abattoir on the prowl for available stock, returns for quality in specification carcases remain extremely high. Whilst the outlook is fair leading up to Easter, the question is, will the trade be able to hold at these levels indefinitely or will consumers start to shy away at the inevitable price increase in the shop?

With the country still in lock down the strong demand for beef and lamb to eat at home continues, demand for Organic beef and lamb has risen as consumers look increasingly towards the Organic quality end of the market.
Lamb and beef prices have exceeded producers’ expectations and this trend looks likely to continue at least until we see a flush of cattle in the Autumn.
For most of the country feed and forage is still in good supply with one or two exceptions in the South and East of the Country. Store cattle prices are very buoyant with finishers and grazers hungry for cattle as numbers of cattle are below seasonably what we would expect. Demand for organic dairy cattle also remains strong with us having demand that far exceeds supply. Cattle are being turned out now in a number of areas and let’s hope we have better rainfall than we experienced last Spring. The future of lockdown and overseas holidays is as yet unpredictable but it is likely that far fewer of us will be holidaying abroad.
The future in the medium term looks good although feed prices will remain high.
