Welcome to Livestock Now, a hub for Elders livestock news, insights, analysis, and support. 

Livestock Now is packed with content and analysis covering outlooks for livestock markets from our very own business intelligence analyst Richard Koch. In another piece, Simon Quilty from Global AgriTrends explores Brazil’s fight for FMD free status, after he recently visited South America. 

Our recent presence as Principal Partner of Beef Australia has been popular among beef producers across Australia, with a series of activities, sales and seminars delivered across the week-long event. Read on to learn more. 

You’ll also find informative animal health pieces from our specialists in livestock production, relating to the management of perinatal ewes, tips on maximising your winter forage and opportunities for efficiencies in dairy. 

In a first for Livestock Now, we are kicking off a series, “Meat the Supplier”, which dives into the meat processing supply chain. Below you will find an interview with Connor FitzGerald, general manager of the business responsible for procuring 70 per cent of the beef and pork requirements for McDonald’s. Connor reveals how Fulton Market Group supports McDonald’s in their procurement, and some of the key misconceptions about the wider supply chain.  

Finally, meet some of the up-and-coming agents in our New South Wales livestock business, including Justin Oakenfull, who recently took out the top spot at the National ALPA Young Auctioneer Competition.  

Consider subscribing to make sure you’re the first to receive new content. Quarterly, subscribers can look forward to a summary email of what’s new on Livestock Now, in addition to regular commentary throughout the quarter.
