Annually we market;-
  • 30,000 clean and cull cattle
  • 35,000 baby and reared calves
  • 60,000 ewes & lambs
  • 500,000 pigs
  • Critical mass is important, but so too is effective representation on behalf of our producers
slide3
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!
slide4
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.
slide5
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
slide6
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)
slide7
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.
slide8
Specialist TB Sales
  • Loss of A. Q. U.’s.
  • Approved Rearing Unit. (ARU’s).
  • Approved Feeding Unit. (AFU’s).
slide9
TB Cases

England and Wales widely affected.

We need to be in this together!
