IF you wanted to make some money over the past 24 months, you couldn’t argue against investing in beef.
While the EYCI has slowed from the 700c/kg peaks, prices are still at levels where producers are in the driver’s seat.
The cattle market is going strong and there is still plenty of optimism about the stud game too.
A $325,000 bull in drought-affected Queensland in October is evidence their is money available and people are prepared to invest.
With autumn sales fast approaching and the season being positive throughout southern Australia, many will be watching with interest to see where the market goes for quality cattle.
Which is why Stock & Land Beef Week has proven to be such a success over a long period of time.
Now in its 27th year, it is the perfect time for studs to show off the latest range and for buyers to do their early assessments.
Stock & Land is leading the way in its digital coverage of the event with a dedicated Stock & Land Beef Week homepage with photos, videos and stories from the huge nine-day event.
A massive amount of credit needs to go to the Beef Week committee, with the excellent support from Beef Week director Geoff Phillips, as well as a big thank you to the sponsors who continue to support the event.
Stock & Land will continue to have a number of our team out on the road and talking with farmers, as Stock & Land Beef Week offers us a great opportunity to speak to readers and clients.
