Dairy Industry in Dire Straits

Dairy Industry in Dire Straits

Dairy Australia and George the Farmer

If you enjoy your milk, cheese, yoghurt or butter you need to understand what is currently happening in the dairy industry in Australia. It's not good. Last week one of Australia's largest processors, Murray Goulburn, announced massive payment cuts to their dairy farmers. This week the other major processor Fonterra has followed. Milk on average costs a dairy farmer approximately 42c a litre to produce. With these latest cuts dairy farmers can expect to be paid 14c a litre from the processor*.

EYCI eases to 589.5c/kg

EYCI eases to 589.5c/kg

By KAREN BAILEY The Land

YOUNG cattle prices have eased slightly in the past week due to bigger yardings at some centres in NSW. 

On the back of last week’s near record prices, the prospect of a hot, dry summer had some producers opting to offload any surplus stock on Monday and Tuesday this week.

As a result, the Eastern Young Cattle Indicator slipped to 589.5 cents a kilogram (carcase weight) on Tuesday - back 5.5c/kg on the same time last week.

Mature cow weight a balancing act

Mature cow weight a balancing act

By Shan Goodwin the Land

SAME BUT DIFFERENT: Non-genetic factors can influence mature cow weight. These two, six-year-old cows by the same bull were managed identically up until weaning, when the smaller was fed under drought-like conditions. The smaller cow weighs 505kg and has a fat score 1, the larger one 658kg, fat score 2.

MATURE cow weight and the impact it has on the profitability of beef operations is becoming a hot topic as thoughts turn towards herd rebuilding.

Determining the optimal cow size for an operation and whether there is more money in producing a larger number of lighter weaners versus less but heavier calves was a key topic at beef producers field day held at Casino last week.
