  • Critical mass is important, but so too is effective representation on behalf of our producers

  • The Brief

  • To take the OFC global observations of the world beef market, filter them through the simple, humble mind of an Herefordian livestock man;

  • …….And suggest how it might impact on beef producers here in the UK!

  • So, not much to report on from the Oxford Farming Conference for beef producers then?

  • Well – yes, actually!

  • It raise questions on how we produce beef going forward.

  • Just Some of the Challenges;-

  • Depleting natural energy resource

  • Rising energy costs

  • Reliance on cereals for energy production

  • Increasing fertiliser costs

  • Rising land values

  • Restrictive livestock movement legislation

  • With that volatility, comes vulnerability

  • Benefits of Collaboration in Practice

  • Reduced carbon footprint.

  • Increased cattle numbers. (+50%)

  • Reduced expensive inputs.

  • Increased carcase yield. (+14%)

  • Reduced production period. (- 42 days)

  • Increased profitability. (circa £250/hd)

  • TB Controls – The Big Challenge!

  • A Two-tier market – not good for the beef industry;

  • It is divisive.

  • It is unfair.

  • And it is not sustainable.
