Big week in Darwin as 15,000 cattle successfully loaded and shipped amid COVID lockdown

Cattle exports from Australia reached a seven month high in May, boosted by a return in normal monthly shipping volumes to Vietnam.

A total of 88,424 cattle were exported during May, according to the latest departmental data, the highest monthly volume since October 2020, when 90,754 head were exported.

May exports comprised shipments of 40,582 feeder cattle to Indonesia, 25,499 breeder, feeder and slaughter cattle to Vietnam, 8,513 breeders to China, and 7,175 feeder cattle to the Philippines.

Exports to Vietnam dropped to zero in March and improved only slightly to 3,713 head in April before returning to more usual monthly volumes in May.

A total of 118,400 cattle have been exported in the calendar year to date from Darwin, including 26,935 head shipped in May.

Exports from Townsville for the year to the end of May have totalled 104,510 head, including 30,888 head in May.

The 2021 export season also got underway from Broome in May with 13,521 cattle exported.

Genetic selection for tick resistance is feasible, multi-nation study shows

A GROUND-BREAKING multi-nation research study has shown that breeding strong tick resistance into all cattle breeds is feasible, indicating that cattle tick may be much more effectively managed, or even eradicated.

The study demonstrates proof-of-concept for using the cattle genome to tackle a pest that costs the Australian cattle industry more than $175 million a year.

Researchers from Australia, Brazil, Scotland and South Africa contributed to a multi-nation, multi-breed analysis – a first of its kind – which concluded that genomic breeding values can be estimated across a wide range of unrelated cattle breeds and used to improve tick resistance.

Globally, 80 percent of the world’s cattle are at risk of tick-borne diseases. The economic loss from cattle ticks worldwide is estimated to be US$22-30 billion per annum.

In Australia, and globally, the range of cattle ticks is expanding as the planet warms. As a result, the range is shrinking for cattle breeds with low tick resistance — which includes all the Bos taurus breeds that underpin Australia’s high-value beef export markets.

Cattle Council welcomes levy payer register, stresses need for access for democratic work

Cattle Council of Australia has welcomed news that Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) has started the development of a Levy Payer Register for cattle producers, but has also stressed that it is vital the register be made available for important democratic work on behalf of levy payers.

The Levy Payer Register is a database of the details of individuals and organisations who pay red meat industry-specific transaction levies – read more here.

As it is currently drafted in the legislation, ‘eligible recipients’ of levy payer information are Research and Development Corporations (RDCs – in the case of the cattle transaction levy that is MLA) and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The ABS cannot establish a Levy Payer Register but can seek access to the data to perform any of its functions.

Once established, an RDC can use the levy payer information from their register for the specific purposes:

  • to maintain a register of who has paid a levy and/or charge
  • to maintain a register of persons eligible to vote in a poll conducted by, or on behalf of, the RDC
  • to make public information of a statistical nature
  • in performing its functions under law of the Commonwealth or under a contract or agreement with the Commonwealth
  • to determine whether a person is or remains eligible to be a member of the RDC.

The legislation says levy payer information may not be used for purposes such as:

  • agri-political activities
  • increase the membership of an industry representative body
  • an activity that would give a commercial advantage to a participant in the industry
  • an activity unrelated to the function of the RDC.

Access to the levy payer information by a third party (ie, anyone outside of MLA) can only occur with the approval of the Secretary of the Department of Agriculture.

Top End buffalo shipping to South Australia feedlot as consumer demand soars

For more than 20 years, Paul Blacket and his family have successfully fed bush goats in their feedlot, as an addition to their on-farm cereal production, 70 kilometres north of Adelaide.

However, in the past 12 months at the River Light Goat Depot just outside Mallala, they have taken on a slightly larger ruminant: Northern Territory buffalo.

"We’ve been doing goats for 25 years, processing them and delivering to shops all over Australia and we just started getting more and more requests for [buffalo].

"We thought, okay, [there] could be an opportunity here."

Ten years on, Rinderpest eradication highlights the value of vaccines

By Mariana Marrana, OIE
The global eradication of Rinderpest gives reason to be optimistic when it comes to fighting infectious animal diseases. While the recent COVID-19 pandemic has shown the devastating impact emerging infectious diseases can have, it is also a reminder of the critical role vaccines can play in protecting us all.

For centuries, Rinderpest outbreaks caused the death of millions of cattle, buffalo, yak and wild animals across Africa, Asia and Europe. These outbreaks meant consecutive food shortages resulting in starvation, economic and social unrest, as well as disrupted cattle-powered ploughs used in rural areas to cultivate land. Decades of concerted efforts from governments and local organizations supported by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), along with other partners, resulted in the eradication of Rinderpest through mass vaccination campaigns of cattle. Global victory over this devastating disease was declared in 2011, ten years after the last case had been reported to the OIE.

New research open for participation: Detecting disease outbreaks early

What is the research about and what is it trying to achieve?

  • An important part of the biosecurity system is ongoing surveillance so that if a disease is present, it is detected and responded to as early as possible.
  • This new project is investigating factors that influence farmer-decision making when disease is suspected on a farm, specifically relating to the role of trust.
  • The aim is to understand the role of trust and how it can help facilitate early detection of disease, rapid response, and minimise impacts on business and the environment.

What is involved if I participate and how will my data be used?

  • The views of all aquaculture, plant and livestock sector farm owners, managers and health managers are being sought in a short, anonymous survey that is open now. Multiple responses from within a business welcome.
  • This survey is part of an honours project conducted through the ANU and is seeking a wide range of views from across aquaculture, livestock and plant industries.
  • The questions focus on trust in the context of a hypothetical disease outbreak. It should take 10-20 minutes to complete at the most.
  • All data collected will be anonymous and aggregated at a national level. Data will not be collected on a sector or state level.

New Agriculture Visa to address labour shortages

On 16 June 2021, the Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management, the Hon David Littleproud MP, announced a new Agriculture Visa to fill the labour shortage in Australia and provide a sustainable source of motivated agricultural workers for future harvests. The new agricultural visa will be open to the ten ASEAN nations, including Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines, Myanmar, Malaysia, Laos, Indonesia, Cambodia and Brunei.

The Government will work through the detailed arrangements and further information will be forthcoming. Any new arrangements will build on the successful Pacific Labour Mobility schemes that have proven invaluable to the agriculture sector, particularly since they restarted in September 2020.

Farmers forecast by ABARES to sell $66.3 billion of produce in 2020 –2021

Australian farmers are on track to record their most valuable year yet, expected to sell $66.3 billion worth of produce in 2020-21.

The latest forecast by the government forecaster, ABARES, said high prices for livestock and the quick-moving export of Australia’s second-largest winter crop — barley — will lift farm gate returns up 8 per cent on the drought-riddled 2019–20.

But the shine is expected to come off next year with the forecast farm gate value to fall to $65 billion in 2021–22, reduced due to the number of farmers choosing to breed livestock rather than slaughter.

Resources and Agribusiness Exports Underpinning Australia’s Economy

Data released earlier this month by the ABS showed Australia posted a $9.7 billion trade surplus in May, which is not far off the record high of $9.87 billion set in January.

The data is very much in line with the Territory’s Economic Reconstruction final report and its focus on our mining and agriculture sectors as key contributors to the Territory economic rebound.

This month we saw the first shipment of iron ore from processed waste materials at Frances Creek Mine celebrated, as iron ore prices hit record highs, reaching more than US$210 per tonne as demand for the mineral soars.

Last month we saw MT Todd Mine get the green light, with the Project creating around 450 jobs during construction and 350 jobs during peak production.

This is the fifth major mine approval over the past 12 months in the Northern Territory and a further step to strategically position us as a globally-significant industry hub.

The Territory Government has also awarded $1.7 million in grants to support 18 projects from 15 companies under the latest Geophysics and Drilling Collaboration program.

Agriculture is Australia’s fastest growing sector. The Territory has a diverse and well-established agriculture, forestry and fisheries sectors, with plant-based industries alone worth over $350 million and over 135,000 tonnes of produce grown annually.

Agricultural developments will also bring significant ongoing development opportunities and sustainable economic benefits to the Northern Territory – along with 150 local jobs.

This month we saw the Territory Government announce the next steps to support large scale agricultural land developments which will see northern Australia capitalise on the increasing demand for premium quality Australian produce, ensure sustainable continuity of food supply for domestic and export markets and enhance the profitability and economic resilience of the region.

Work to develop a new Agribusiness Strategy has also progressed this month at an industry forum in Darwin. The strategy will outline the Territory’s vision for the agribusiness sector for the next decade in collaboration with key agribusiness partners.

Quotes from Minister for Mining and Industry, Nicole Manison:

“We know the investment potential of the Territory and that our mining and agribusiness sectors will deliver more jobs, significantly boost the economy and keep us on track as the Comeback Capital."

“There are currently 20 mining projects working towards a Final Investment Decision (FID) in the Territory with a combined value of $6.2 billion and potential to create 5700 construction jobs and 3400 ongoing jobs."

“The Territory’s agricultural sector has a significant role to play in the recovery of our economy. The potential for growth in food and fibre production in the Territory will attract private investment, create long-term, sustainable employment and diversify the Territory’s suite of exports."


Alleged cattle duffing operation raid in Katherine uncovers firearms, $700k worth of stolen cattle: NT Police

A raid on an alleged cattle duffing operation near Katherine has resulted in the discovery of more than $700,000 worth of stolen cattle, as well as seizures of firearms, a quantity of fireworks and “part of a protected animal species”, NT Police said.

Two men a currently facing multiple charges following the raid.

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Ian Kennon said police remained on the station for four days to recover the cattle, valued at more than $700,000.

“Police are further investigating a large quantity of calves located, some of which are believed to be stolen,” he said in a statement.

“Since the implementation of Taskforce Starlight in late 2020, a joint operation between NT Police and the Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade, there has been an increase in the reporting of this type of offending.

“All matters reported to police will be investigated thoroughly and offenders prosecuted where possible.”

Anyone wishing to report cattle theft can call 131 444.

New Johne’s disease (cattle strain) cattle import conditions for Western Australia

New Johne’s Disease import requirements were introduced by the Western Australia Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) for cattle and buffalo entering WA from 1 July 2021.

These changes relate to livestock owner/manager and veterinarian declarations and JD testing requirements.
For cattle which were not born on the NT exporting property, there is an additional producer declaration for the property on which the cattle were born and/or resided before 12 months of age. The JD sampling and testing import requirements for these introduced cattle will depend on when the cattle moved off the property on which they were born or resided before 12 months of age. These requirements are outlined on the additional producer declaration.

Import conditions

Key changes that apply from 1 July 2021 include:

  • new faecal sampling and testing requirements (not the same as the national JD in cattle guidelines) and corresponding amendments to veterinary and producer declarations
  • a veterinary-approved biosecurity plan requirement for cattle staying within WA (not imported for slaughter or export)
  • removal of the requirement for the Johne’s Beef Assurance Score (JBAS) and JD Dairy Assurance Score for cattle imported to stay in WA.

Stay safe this fire season

Rural landholders are being urged to have their properties and bushfire survival plans in place this Fire Danger Period for the Top End.

A permit to burn is required anywhere north of the 17th parallel of south latitude (approximately 50km north of Elliot) between 28 June 2021 and 30 November 2021. Failure to comply can result in substantial penalties.

Quotes by Bushfires NT Chief Fire Control Officer Andrew Turner

“Now is the time to make sure your property and family is prepared for this Fire Danger Period.

“This time of year is always busy for our brigades, and there is no guarantee we will be able to respond to every call which is why families need to have a fire management plan and a survival plan in place.

“This includes keeping fuel loads to a minimum around your property by clearing away dried grass, dead leaves and branches.

“Trim back trees that overhang structures and control or eradicate grassy weed species.

“Maintain a well-cut lawn around your home and install firebreaks that are free from slashed or dead material and don’t have any vegetation more than 50 millimetres high.

“Make sure you have plenty of water and the right equipment to put out a fire, if necessary.

“Also ensure your property is easily identifiable with a street and lot number visible on the front gate. Clearly visible signs are critical to help our firies find your home.

“We also urge the public to report illegal or suspicious activity in their community to police on 131 444 or anonymously via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”


Recruitment: Value in boosting employees’ team spirit

Great workplace environments in the meat and livestock industry don’t just happen – they are a result of hard work from leaders, and buy-in from staff.

But if managers are able to achieve a great work environment, their team will pay them back with consistency, productivity and excellence.

So what are the secrets to an energetic, harmonious and productive workplace?

The Basics

As a leader, you first need to lay down the foundations for a good work environment. A cohesive team will come from doing the basics right, and setting a clear expectation of your team’s culture.


Nothing kills team spirit like workplace whispers. What may have been something entirely minor and inconsequential can, through a series of half-truths and embellishments, mutate into something quite the opposite. As such, a policy of openness and honesty is a non-negotiable for a great workplace environment.

Employees that know what’s going on and are included in the conversation are far more likely to feel invested in where your organisation is heading. This will lead to greater output and greater work satisfaction.


The number one reason that employees leave jobs is that they feel underappreciated. Everyone likes to be recognised for a job well done. It’s human nature. If an employee’s hard work does go unnoticed, it can have a severe effect on their current motivation, and ultimately on their future output.

Pats on the back for a job well done are a simple – almost token – gesture, but one that is the most effective weapon that a leader has in their management arsenal.


By solving problems as a team, you’ll bring the group together for a common cause. The unity that comes from this collaborative approach can be invaluable – employees feel like they’re contributing to the company’s success, and by doing so as a team, they can enjoy the subsequent accomplishments as a team.

Promotion of Work/Life Balance

All work and no play will risk making your team dull or dispirited. If your employees feel as though all they do is work, their motivation will drop. Employees need to feel as though their workload is manageable. If they sense that there’s no light at the end of the tunnel, morale will suffer.

Along with not over-burdening employees, managers can also help them achieve a healthy work/life balance by offering their team activities that are non-work related.

Non-work related activities – whether employed during working hours to break up the day, or outside work hours to allow your team to socialise more naturally – can be a boon for team spirit.

Sports or recreational activities

A social sporting event like a scratch game of cricket or tennis, a Cattle Baron board-game knock-out competition, or other pastime engaging your employees is a fantastic way to cultivate team spirit, as well as promote health and fitness within your business. It can create excellent intra-department banter in the coffee room, and the competitive juices generated may flow nicely into the workplace.

Getting Social

Another option is a more one-off activity. Taking your team for a half-day fishing in the local waterhole or Melbourne Cup day lunch at the local pub will offer excellent opportunities for them to bond over a shared experience.

Your team needn’t be bound by the weekday hours of 8 to 5. Offering to shout your employees’ dinner and a drink on a Friday night – perhaps as a reward for good work can strengthen their social bonds, and if all goes well, these events can also make for some excellent banter on Monday morning.

Taking some of these initiatives and boosting your workplace, your team will be able to get to know one another on a more personal level, creating familiarity that will go a long way to boosting the morale during the working week.

By combining good management foundations with a little bit of fun, managers should see a noticeable boost in team’s spirit. While a manager can’t control every aspect of their employees’ work experience, they can certainly lay some solid foundations for a fun, harmonious and productive environment.

Ensuring You Are Ready for Bushfire

Bushfires and the Australian landscape

Bushfires are an unfortunate way of life for many Australians, a part of living on such an arid island, but while some people are lucky, and able to rebuild and add water storage for bushfire protection after an incident, it is better to be prepared before. As the old adage goes, prevention is better than the cure.
A well prepared home is not only easier for you and firefighters to defend, it also helps reduce the risk for your neighbours, and increase your chances of survival if you are forced to shelter within the home.

Prepare your home

Ensure that you have a building protection zone as a buffer between any trees and shrubs, and your home, by managing and reducing fuel loads for a minimum of 20 metres around a building. Ensuring that any trees within this zone are located at least two metres from a building, and are skirted or pruned up to a height of 2 metres.

Understand your risk

Considering factors specific to your location can be crucial in understanding the risk to your home, and the extent of fire protection measures you’re likely to need.
These factors include; how long the fire season is, and when it takes place, if you live on or near a steep slope, how much vegetation is near your home, including grasses, scrub and bushland, how dry the vegetation is, how often you have bushfires in the area, and how good the roads are at providing ease of movement through the area.

June beef exports slump, on back of rebuilding and JBS cyber-attack closures

JBS Australia’s dramatic week-long closure early last month due to a cyber attack on its operating systems played a part in substantially lower Australian beef exports during June.

While export volumes this year generally have been severely hampered by low rates of beef kill as the national herd enters post-drought recovery, the nation’s largest beef processor’s week-long closure only added to the trend.

Most of JBS’s Australian plants in Queensland (four), NSW (two), Victoria (one) and Tasmania (one) missed a week’s operations last month due to the cyber attack, returning to work on either Monday or Tuesday, June 7-8.

Total Australian beef export volumes to all markets last month fell to 73,551 tonnes, down 4pc on the month before, and back 24,000t or 24pc on June last year. Reflecting the very low current rates of cow kill due to breeder retention, frozen boneless exports last month were just 46,000t – down 28pc on the same period last year, despite sharply rising prices in some markets for manufacturing beef.

For the six months ended June 30, total exports reached just 422,412t – down 131,000t or 23pc on the first-half last year, and 26pc lower than the same period in 2019.

New post on Southeast Asian Beef Market Report

Juni Laporan Pasar : Industri Daging Asia Tenggara

by Dr. Ross

Edisi 91 : Juni 2021.

Poin-poin Utama

· Lonjakan Covid-19 membuat kekacauan di seluruh negara Asia dan berdampak pada kesehatan manusia dan rantai pasokan pasar.
· Harga sapi di Australia Utara tetap tinggi di bulan Juni untuk pertama kalinya.
· Impor Indonesia meningkat tajam menjadi lebih dari 50.000 untuk bulan Juni.
· Harga sapi hidup China melonjak setelah Argentina mengurangi ekspor.

Indonesia: Sapi Potong Steers AUD $4.59/kg bobot hidup (Rp10.900=$1AUD)

Harga sapi potong telah turun menjadi Rp 50.000 per kg bobot hidup, turun dari Rp 51.000 pada bulan lalu karena pasar dan kondisi seluruh negeri yang sedang berjuang dengan gelombang baru infeksi Covid 19. Harga tertinggi yang dilaporkan untuk bulan Juni adalah Rp 51.000 per kg sedangkan harga terendah untuk sapi steer di Lampung adalah Rp 49.000. Tingginya harga ini ditambah dengan masalah pembatasan pergerakan Covid 19 sehingga mengakibatkan permintaan daging yang sangat lemah. Prediksi pemerintah akan terjadi lonjakan infeksi Covid 19, dikarenakan warga mudik ke kampung halamannya untuk libur Lebaran tahunan. Meskipun pembatasan perjalanan diberlakukan oleh semua tingkatan pemerintah baik pusat dan daerah, banyak orang Indonesia mengabaikan larangan dan tetap merayakan Hari Besar bersama keluarga mereka di seluruh wilayah Indonesia. Libur Lebaran sayangnya bersamaan dengan masuknya varian virus Covid yang lebih menular ke Indonesia sehingga mengakibatkan lonjakan infeksi yang masif sehingga pemerintah pusat memerintahkan lockdown yang sangat ketat dari awal Juli hingga tanggal 20 dan situasi akan terus ditinjau. Layanan perawatan kesehatan sudah kewalahan oleh pasien baru sementara banyak unit perawatan intensif yang kapasitasnya sudah penuh.

Bali telah diprioritaskan untuk pemberian vaksinasi untuk membantu membuka pasar turis secepat mungkin sehingga orang Bali dapat kembali bekerja. Populasi masyarakat di Bali sekitar 4,4 juta dan sekitar 3 juta di antaranya adalah orang dewasa. Statistik vaksin saat ini menunjukkan bahwa 2,4 juta (80% orang dewasa) telah mendapatkan suntikan pertama sementara 750.000 (25%) telah mendapatkan dosis kedua. Angka-angka ini jauh di atas wilayah lain di Indonesia. Terlepas dari angka yang menggembirakan ini, Kepala Dinas Kesehatan Denpasar menyatakan bahwa ruang ICU di tiga rumah sakit rujukan Covid-19 kota terisi hingga 100%.

Harga daging sapi di pasar basah mengalami sedikit penurunan di bawah harga tertinggi yang pernah dicapai bulan lalu (Rp 160.000/AUD$14.66 per kg) tetapi masih jauh di atas harga normal yaitu di Rp 155.000/kg pada akhir bulan Juni.

Daging kerbau India saat ini tidak tersedia di supermarket atau pasar basah mana pun yang telah dikunjungi oleh reporter saya tetapi staf supermarket memberi tahu bahwa ketika ada stok, harganya akan tetap berkisar antara Rp 80.000 sampai Rp 90.000 per kg. Kekurangan stok di supermarket tempat kami memeriksa harga, mungkin menunjukkan bahwa persediaan daging kerbau beku nasional hampir habis.

  • Ini adalah pemandangan jalan utama CBD Jakarta pada hari pertama lockdown pada 3 Juli.

  • Grafik Universitas Johns Hopkins (JHU) menunjukkan peningkatan pesat jumlah kasus pada bulan Juni.

Tampaknya pemerintah pusat sengaja memasukkan Hari Raya Qurban yang akan berlangsung pada 20 Juli dalam periode lockdown sebagai upaya untuk sekali lagi membatasi interaksi keluarga yang intensif selama hari raya yang penting ini. Dengan ratusan ribu sapi serta jutaan domba dan kambing yang biasanya disembelih pada saat Qurban (selama periode 3 hari), mungkin saat ini ada penurunan besar dalam jumlah pemotongan hewan yang mengakibatkan penurunan pada harga daging domestik karena banyak di antaranya ditahan sampai hari raya selesai dan kemudian memasuki perdagangan lokal harian yang dapat mengakibatkan lonjakan pasokan.

Total impor sapi bakalan selama bulan Juni melonjak hingga 50.500 ekor terbagi antara Darwin (25.100), Townsville (7.600), Wyndham (3.300) dan Broome (14.500). Terimakasih banyak kepada kedua Otoritas Pelabuhan yang telah sangat membantu memberikan informasi terkini. Mengikuti total impor pada bulan Mei sebanyak 40.600, pada bulan April sebanyak 39.700 dan pada bulan Maret sebanyak 35.700.

Kementerian Keuangan telah mengumumkan akan mengenakan pajak pertambahan nilai (PPN) baru untuk beberapa produk makanan premium termasuk daging sapi wagyu, shirataki, dan nasi basmati. Menurut Kementerian, PPN atas barang-barang premium ini merupakan bentuk keadilan pajak untuk makanan produksi dalam negeri.

  • Pasar basah tetap buka dengan jumlah yang menurun dan pelanggan menghabiskan lebih sedikit waktu di pasar.
  • Knuckle di supermarket BSD City Carrefour ini dijual seharga Rp 192.500 per kg (AUD$17.66) sedangkan produk yang sama di SuperIndo adalah Rp 157.950.

Sapi potong Darwin harga tetap bertahan di AUD$4.10 per kg bobot hidup. Saya berharap bahwa ini adalah pertama kalinya harga sapi Australia Utara tidak turun secara signifikan pada bulan Juni, bersamaan dengan bulan Juli yang merupakan puncak dari periode pengumpulan dan penjualan sapi pada tahun ini.

Bahkan, mereka yang paling dekat dengan pasar menyatakan bahwa bulan Juli mungkin mengalami peningkatan dibandingkan dengan bulan Juni untuk pertama kalinya dalam sejarah perdagangan sapi di Northern Territory.

Townsville tampaknya mengikuti pola yang sama dengan sapi jantan steer besar yang cocok untuk dijual ke Vietnam seharga $3.80 pada akhir Juni dengan prediksi kenaikan harga pada bulan Juli.

Vietnam : Sapi Potong Steers AUD $4.66 / kg (VND17.600 = $1AUD) Tingkat pemotongan terus stabil pada tingkat terakhir selama bulan Juni dengan tingkat rata-rata Dong 82.000 per kg bobot hidup. Namun, permintaan kemungkinan akan turun lebih rendah dalam waktu dekat karena lonjakan kasus Covid-19 baru-baru ini telah mengakibatkan gangguan rantai pasokan yang parah ke semua tingkat distribusi makanan di seluruh negeri karena banyak pasar basah dan pasar grosir telah berhenti beroperasi akibat pembatasan ketat.

  • Grafik di atas adalah dari JHU yang menunjukkan peningkatan tajam kasus Covid pada bulan Juni.

Impor sapi hidup dari Australia untuk bulan Juni (11.750) turun dari jumlah tertinggi terakhir di bulan Mei (19.000) tetapi masih jauh di atas April (3.700) dan Maret (0).

Sebuah artikel berita terbaru menggambarkan status kawanan sapi di akhir tahun 2020. Kawanan sapi nasional sekitar 6,3 juta ekor dan meningkat sangat sedikit sedangkan kawanan kerbau di 2,2 juta dan menurun secara perlahan.

Selama tahun 2020, 550.000 ekor sapi hidup diimpor dengan 301.000 ekor berasal dari Australia dan mayoritas sisanya dari Thailand (dan Myanmar melalui Thailand). Selama tahun 2020 sebanyak 106.000 ton daging sapi olahan diimpor dengan mayoritas dari Australia sedangkan sekitar 30% berasal dari Amerika Serikat.

Impor kerbau India senilai USD $ 414 juta naik 30% dibandingkan 2019.

Nilai produk di India berada di harga USD $ 3.000 per ton. Jika biaya asuransi dan pengiriman konservatif USD $ 1.000 per ton, total USD $ 414 juta ini akan menunjukkan bahwa volume yang diimpor Vietnam selama tahun 2020 bisa mencapai 100.000 ton. Karena orang Vietnam tidak mengkonsumsi sejumlah besar produk daging India, sebagian besar hampir pasti diteruskan ke China melalui jalur abu-abu.

Vietnam sedang mengalami nasib buruk saat ini dengan peningkatan kasus Covid-19 yang sangat tajam, wabah Demam Babi Afrika yang sedang berlangsung (lihat blok merah di bawah) dan epidemi penyakit kulit Lumpy (LSD) yang meluas pada ternak sapi dan kerbau. Dengan LSD yang juga baru- baru ini ditemukan di Thailand, hal ini mengakibatkan penutupan perbatasan yang ketat yang memotong sumber impor sapi hidup paling umum kedua setelah Australia.

ASF telah menghasilkan transisi yang menarik untuk industri daging babi. Sebelum kedatangan ASF, peternakan rumahan menyumbang 99% dari produksi babi domestik. Deputi Menteri Pertanian dan Pembangunan Pedesaan baru-baru ini menyarankan bahwa tingkat operator peternakan rumahan kini telah turun menjadi 50% menyusul pesatnya perkembangan operasi intensif besar.

  • Blok merah terang menunjukkan wabah baru selama bulan Juni dengan Vietnam yang paling banyak sementara China tidak melaporkannya.
  • Sapi peternak rumahan dirawat karena Penyakit Kulit Lumpy.

Cina : Sapi potong AUD $7.08 / kg bobot hidup (RMB 4.86 = AUD1$)

Harga sapi potong hidup meningkat tajam bulan ini dari rata-rata 32 Yuan per kg di bulan Mei menjadi 34.4 Yuan di bulan Juni. Ini pertama kalinya harga sapi potong hidup naik sejak mulai turun stabil pada Oktober 2020. Lihat grafik di bawah. Saya telah mencoba untuk memahami mengapa harga sapi potong China telah menurun selama periode ini yang bertepatan dengan permintaan dunia yang kuat dan tingkat ekspor yang umumnya kuat dari semua pemasok China.

Dalam grafik di bawah ini saya telah membandingkan tren harga daging babi Cina dengan harga sapi potong hidup dan tampaknya ada beberapa korelasi antara penurunan harga daging babi dari awal tahun 2021 dan penurunan harga sapi yang serupa kecuali bulan Juni 2021. China pertama kali melaporkan wabah African Swine Fever (ASF) mereka pada Agustus 2018 diikuti dengan penurunan populasi babi mereka sekitar 50% selama 12 – 18 bulan ke depan sebagai akibat dari kematian akibat infeksi dan langkah-langkah pemberantasan destocking. Harga sapi tertinggi terjadi pada Oktober 2020 ketika harga daging babi berada di masa stabil tinggi dalam sejarah, mulai dari Yuan 50 hingga Y61 per kg. Saat itu China mengklaim bahwa mereka telah mengalahkan ASF dan pembangunan kembali kawanan mereka sedang berjalan dengan baik. Klaim ini dipenuhi oleh banyak pengamat ternak babi dengan sejumlah besar skeptisisme. Mungkin pemerintah China benar dan kawanan ternak telah pulih. Klaim pemulihan dramatis kawanan ternak babi nasional ini tampaknya didukung oleh penurunan yang sangat cepat sebesar 62% dalam harga daging babi eceran sejak Februari 2021. Klaim pemulihan kawanan ternak babi juga didukung oleh penurunan besar-besaran dalam ekspor daging babi AS ke China tahun ini. Kenaikan mendadak harga sapi hidup pada bulan Juni dapat dijelaskan oleh penangguhan ekspor daging sapi Argentina secara tiba-tiba yang dimulai pada tanggal 17 Mei karena pasokan dari Argentina selama bulan Maret dan April memenuhi sekitar 20% dari total impor daging sapi Cina.

  • Sebagai pelengkap saya sertakan grafik JHU untuk Covid di China ini. Demikian informasi terbaru yang diperoleh JHU beberapa hari yang lalu.

Filipina : Sapi Potong AUD $3.54 / kg (Peso 36.7 = AUD$1)

Harga sapi potong tetap stabil lagi selama bulan Juni. Berbeda dengan negara- negara lain di kawasan Asia, Filipina mengalami lonjakan kasus Covid pada Maret/April 2021 dengan penurunan kasus meskipun masih tetap pada tingkat yang sangat tinggi yaitu lebih dari 4.000 kasus baru per hari. ASF terus mengganggu industri babi dengan wabah baru di Luzon dan Mindanao pada pertengahan Juni.

Walaupun angka impor untuk Filipina tidak terlalu besar, namun menunjukkan tren yang sangat menggembirakan dengan impor sapi bakalan selama 12 bulan hingga akhir Mei 2021 sebesar 23.000 ekor yang menunjukkan peningkatan tahunan per hari ini sebesar 42%. Angka year to date adalah 8.547 hingga akhir Mei yang naik 34% dari periode ini tahun lalu. Setelah Covid dan ASF terkendali, Filipina dapat menjadi pelanggan ekspor hidup yang signifikan bagi Australia sekali lagi.

Thailand : Sapi Potong Steers AUD $4.18 / kg (Baht 23.9 = $1AUD)

Harga sapi potong terus menurun hingga100 Baht per kg selama bulan Juni (107 di bulan April dan 104 di bulan Mei). Seperti halnya Vietnam, Thailand menghadapi banyak masalah, yang paling utama terkait dengan virus, namun ditambah juga dengan gejolak politik yang keras di Myanmar yang mengarah pada penutupan total perdagangan sapi hidup lintas batas. Terlepas dari peraturan pemerintah, sejumlah besar sapi gemuk Thailand hampir selalu menemukan cara untuk masuk keVietnam sebagai pemasok sapi potong hidup terbesar kedua setelah Australia. Wabah baru penyakit Kulit Lumpy membuat perbatasan mereka yang menghubungkan Thailand ke Vietnam benar-benar ditutup untuk lalu lintas ternak hidup, terlepas dari upaya penyelundupan. Covid 19 juga menyebabkan gangguan serius pada jaringan distribusi sapi dan daging domestik yang menjadikan berkurangnya permintaan dari tukang jagal dan turunnya harga ke peternak.

Daging Sapi Selandia Baru

Adikku Tracey menghabiskan seminggu di pulau selatan NZ pada bulan Juni untuk menikmati pemandangan, makanan, dan anggur dan memberikan kesan yang baik. Saya ingat pernah bertanya kepada pedagang daging internasional (Australia) yang memiliki pengetahuan pengetahuan luas, negara mana yang menghasilkan daging sapi terbaik di dunia. Dia melihat sekeliling untuk memastikan tidak ada yang mendengarkan, lalu memberi tahu saya bahwa daging terbaik adalah Selandia Baru.

  • Eye Fillet dari jaringan supermarket Farro @NZ$44.99 per kg.
  • Sirloin seharga NZ$33.99 per kg di supermarket Farro.
  • Sebagian besar restoran memiliki banyak persediaan daging sapi dry aged.

Menu dari Cucina di kota Oamaru di pulau selatan Selandia Baru.

Angka-angka ini dikonversi ke AUD$ dari mata uang masing-masing yang berubah setiap hari sehingga harga sebenarnya di sini sedikit terganggu oleh fluktuasi valuta asing yang konstan. Angka AUD$ yang disajikan di bawah ini harus dianggap sebagai tren yang dapat diandalkan daripada harga individual yang pasti. Bila memungkinkan potongan daging yang digunakan untuk penetapan harga di pasar basah dan supermarket adalah Knuckle / Round.

Báo cáo Thị trường : Ngành chăn nuôi bò thịt Đông Nam Á

by Dr. Ross

Ấn bản số 91: tháng 6 năm 2021.

Điểm tin chính

· Đại dịch Covid 19 tàn phá sức khỏe con người và chuỗi cung ứng thị trường khắp Châu Á

· Giá bò Bắc Úc lần đầu tiên vẫn giữ được ở mức cao trong tháng 6.

· Giá gia súc sống của Trung Quốc tăng vọt sau khi Ác-hen-ti-na cắt giảm xuất khẩu.

Tại In-đô-nê-sia: Giá gia súc trưởng thành giảm xuống còn 50.000 Rp / kg hơi từ mức giá 51k Rp vào tháng trước, khi thị trường và cả nước phải vật lộn với một làn sóng nhiễm Covid 19 mới. Giá bò trưởng thành cao nhất được ghi lại là vào tháng 6 ở mức 51k Rp / kg và mức thấp nhất là ở Rp49 ở Lampung. Do mức giá cao và các chỉ thị hạn chế đi lại của chính do Covid đã khiến cho nhu cầu sụt giảm. Các nhà chức trách của In-đô-nê-si-a đã dự đoán sự gia tăng của các ca nhiễm Covid hiện nay, khi người dân sẽ về quê trong kỳ nghỉ Lebaran hàng năm. Bất chấp những quy định luật pháp quốc gia và địa phương về hạn chế đi lại, nhiều người In-đô-nê-si-a đã phớt lờ những lời cảnh báo và tổ chức lễ hội cùng gia đình trên khắp đất nước. Kỳ nghỉ Lebaran không may xảy ra cùng thời điểm với với sự lây lan của các biến thể mới của vi rút Covid tại In-đô-nê-si-a, dẫn đến một đợt lây nhiễm trên diện rộng khiến chính quyền trung ương phải ban bố các sắc lệnh đóng cửa nghiêm ngặt từ đầu tháng 7 cho đến ngày 20. Các dịch vụ chăm sóc sức khỏe đã quá tải với nhiều số lượng bệnh nhân mới và nhiều đơn vị chăm sóc đặc biệt đã chật kín chỗ.

Bali đã được ưu tiên cung cấp vắc xin nhằm hỗ trợ mở cửa thương mại du lịch càng nhanh càng tốt, để người Bali có thể trở lại làm việc. Dân số Bali vào khoảng 4,4 triệu người và tôi đoán rằng khoảng 3 triệu người trong số đó là người lớn. Số liệu thống kê về vắc xin hiện tại chỉ ra rằng 2,4 triệu (80% người lớn) đã tiêm mũi đầu tiên trong khi 750.000 (25%) đã tiêm liều thứ hai. Tỉ lệ tiêm vắc xin ở đây cao hơn các khu vực khác rất nhiều. Bất chấp những con số đáng khích lệ này, người đứng đầu Sở Y tế Denpasar thông báo rằng khoa Chăm sóc Tích cực (ICU) tại ba trong số các bệnh viện chuyên trị Covid-19 của thành phố đã được sử dụng 100% công suất.

Giá thịt bò thị tại các chợ truyền thống đã giảm nhẹ xuống dưới mức giá đỉnh (160.000 Rp / Đô la Úc 14,66/kg) vào tháng 5, nhưng vẫn cao hơn nhiều so với mức bình thường ở mức 155.000 Rp/kg vào cuối tháng 6.

Thịt trâu Ấn Độ không có sẵn tại bất kỳ siêu thị hay chợ truyền thống nào mà phóng viên của tôi đến thăm, nhưng các nhân viên thông báo rằng khi có hàng, giá tiếp tục dao động trong khoảng 80 Rp đến 90.000 Rp / kg. Tình trạng khan hiếm hàng tại các siêu thị, nơi chúng tôi kiểm tra giá hàng tháng có thể cho thấy nguồn cung trâu đông lạnh toàn quốc đang ở mức thấp.

  • Đây là quang cảnh của đường phố chính của khu trung tâm Jakarta vào ngày 3 tháng 7, ngày đầu tiên bị đóng cửa.
  • Biểu đồ của Đại học Johns Hopkins (JHU) cho thấy sự gia tăng nhanh chóng về số ca bệnh trong tháng Sáu.

Có vẻ như chính phủ nước này đã cố tình đưa lễ hội Qurban diễn ra vào ngày 20 tháng 7 trong thời gian đóng cửa, để một lần nữa hạn chế các gia đình tiếp xúc với nhau, qua các hoạt động tôn giáo trong thời gian lễ hội quan trọng này. Hàng trăm nghìn con gia súc và hàng triệu con cừu và dê được giết mổ thường xuyên vào thời điểm này (trong khoảng thời gian 3 ngày), số lượng giết mổ có thể sẽ giảm đáng kể, điều này có thể dẫn đến áp lực giảm giá thịt trong nước vì nhiều động vật có thể được giữ lại cho đến sau lễ hội và sau đó được đưa vào buôn bán giết mổ nội địa hàng ngày dẫn đến nguồn cung tăng đột biến.

Tổng nhập khẩu gia súc non trong tháng 6 là khoảng 50.500 con, từ Darwin (25.100 con) và Townsville (7.600 con) Wyndham (3,300 con) và Broome (14,500 con). Cám ơn cán bộ từ các Cảng đã cung cấp thông tin cập nhật của họ. Tổng lượng nhập khẩu là trong tháng 5 là 40.600 con, 39.700 trong tháng 4 và 35.700 trong tháng 3.

Bộ Tài chính vừa thông báo sẽ áp thuế giá trị gia tăng (VAT) mới đối với một số sản phẩm thực phẩm cao cấp bao gồm thịt bò wagyu, shirataki và gạo basmati. Theo Bộ, thuế VAT đối với các mặt hàng cao cấp này là một hình thức công bằng thuế đối cho thực phẩm sản xuất trong nước.

  • Chợ truyền thống vẫn mở cửa với số lượng giảm dần và khách hàng dành ít thời gian hơn trong chợ.
  • Thịt bò đùi gọ tại siêu thị BSD thành phố Carrefour đang được bán với giá 192.500 Rp / kg (17,66 Đô la Úc) trong khi sản phẩm tương tự tại SuperIndo, nơi chúng tôi thu thập giá chỉ báo, là 157.950 Rp.

Giá bò non tại Darwin vẫn giữ vững ở mức 4,10 đô la Úc / kg hơi. Tôi cho rằng đây là lần đầu tiên giá bò ở Bắc Úc không giảm nhiều vào tháng 6, và tháng 7, là thời kỳ cao điểm để thu mua và xuất bán trong năm. Trên thực tế, những người đang tham gia trên thị trường dự báo rằng, lần đầu tiên trong lịch sử tại Lãnh Thổ phía Bắc, giá gia súc tháng 7 có thể cao hơn so với tháng 6. Thị trường tại Townsville cũng tương tự, với giá bò trưởng thành cỡ lớn, phù hợp với thị trường Việt Nam, đạt 3,80 đô la vào cuối tháng 6, dự đoán tăng giá vào tháng 7.

Tại Việt Nam: Giá gia súc trưởng thành $ 4,66 đô la Úc / kg (1 đô la Úc ~ 17.600)

Giá gia súc trưởng thành tiếp tục ổn định trong tháng 6 gần đây, với mức trung bình là 82.000 đồng / kg thịt hơi. Tuy nhiên, nhu cầu có thể sẽ giảm xuống trong tương lai gần do sự gia tăng các ca nhiễm Covid 19, đã dẫn đến sự gián đoạn nghiêm trọng của chuỗi cung ứng đối với tất cả các cấp phân phối thực phẩm trên toàn quốc do nhiều chợ ẩm thực và chợ đầu mối đã đóng cửa hoặc nếu mở cửa thì cũng bị kiểm soát chặt chẽ.

  • Biểu đồ trên của JHU cho thấy sự gia tăng mạnh mẽ các ca nhiễm Covid trong tháng Sáu.

Nhập khẩu gia súc sống từ Úc trong tháng 6 (11.750 con) đã giảm từ mức đỉnh gần đây vào tháng 5 (19.000 con) nhưng vẫn cao hơn tháng 4 (3.700 con) và tháng 3 (0).

Một bài báo gần đây đã mô tả tình hình chăn nuôi gia súc vào cuối năm 2020. Đàn bò cả nước đã tăng nhẹ, đạt khoảng 6,3 triệu con trong khi tổng số lượng trâu đang giảm dần ở mức 2,2 triệu con.

Trong năm 2020, trong tổng số 550.000 con gia súc sống được nhập khẩu, có 301.000 con từ Úc và phần lớn số còn lại từ Thái Lan (và Myanmar đi qua Thái Lan). Trong năm 2020, Việt Nam nhập khẩu 106.000 tấn thịt bò chế biến, trong đó phần lớn là từ Úc và khoảng 30% là từ Mỹ.

Tổng giá trị nhập khẩu trâu từ Ấn Độ đạt 414 triệu USD, tăng 30% so với năm 2019. Giá của sản phẩm từ Ấn Độ là 3.000 USD/tấn. Nếu chi phí bảo hiểm và cước phí ở mức vừa phải là 1.000 Đô la Mỹ/tấn, thì tổng số tiền 414 triệu Đô la Mỹ này sẽ tương ứng khối lượng nhập khẩu của Việt Nam trong năm 2020 có thể là 100.000 tấn. Do người Việt Nam không tiêu thụ nhiều sản phẩm này của Ấn Độ, nên phần lớn chúng đã được bán sang Trung Quốc qua đường tiểu ngạch.

Việt Nam đang gặp phải khó khăn với sự gia tăng mạnh mẽ của Covid-19, Dịch tả lợn Châu Phi bùng phát (xem các khối màu đỏ bên dưới) và dịch bệnh Da sần (LSD) trên đàn trâu bò cũng đang lây lan rộng rãi. Bệnh da sần cũng được phát hiện gần đây ở Thái Lan, điều này đã dẫn đến việc đóng cửa biên giới nghiêm ngặt, cắt đứt nguồn nhập khẩu gia súc sống từ Thái (nguồn cung cấp gia súc sống thứ 2 sau Úc) vào Việt Nam.

Bệnh dịch tả lợn Châu phi đã gây ảnh hưởng ngành công nghiệp thịt lợn. Trước khi bệnh dịch này xuất hiện, sản lượng lợn trong nước đến từ các trang trại nhỏ lẻ gia đình chiếm 99%. Thứ trưởng Bộ Nông nghiệp và Phát triển nông thôn gần đây đã thông báo rằng sau khi các cơ sở chăn nuôi tập trung quy mô lớn phát triển nhanh chóng thì hình thức chăn nuôi nhỏ lẻ này giảm chỉ còn 50%.

  • Các chấm màu đỏ tươi đại diện cho các đợt bùng phát mới trong tháng 6. Việt Nam xuất hiện nhiều nhất trong khi Trung Quốc không báo cáo thông tin.
  • Bò của nông hộ đang được điều trị bệnh Da sần.

Tại Trung Quốc: Gia súc trưởng thành $ 7,08 đô la / kg hơi (1 Đô la Úc = 4,86 Tệ).

Giá gia súc sống trưởng thành đã tăng mạnh trong tháng này từ mức trung bình 32 Tệ/kg trong tháng 5 lên 34,4 Tệ vào tháng 6. Đây là lần đầu tiên giá gia súc sống trưởng thành tăng, kể từ khi trượt giảm vào tháng 10 năm 2020. Xem biểu đồ bên dưới. Tôi đang cố gắng tìm hiểu tại sao giá gia súc trưởng thành của Trung Quốc lại giảm trong giai đoạn này, khi mà nhu cầu thế giới rất cao và giá xuất khẩu nói chung cũng cao, từ tất cả các nhà cung cấp của Trung Quốc. Trong biểu đồ dưới đây, tôi đã so sánh với hướng của giá thịt lợn Trung Quốc với giá thịt bò sống và dường như có một số mối tương quan giữa giá thịt lợn giảm từ đầu năm 2021 và mức giảm tương tự của giá trâu bò, ngoại trừ tháng Sáu năm 2021. Trung Quốc lần đầu tiên báo cáo về sự bùng phát Dịch tả lợn Châu Phi (ASF) vào tháng 8 năm 2018, sau đó tổng số lượng lợn của họ giảm khoảng 50% trong vòng 12-18 tháng do tỷ lệ tử vong do nhiễm trùng và các biện pháp tiêu hủy tận diệt. Giá gia súc đạt đỉnh vào tháng 10 năm 2020 khi giá thịt lợn ở mức cao nhất trong lịch sử, từ 50 đến 61 Tệ/kg.

Vào khoảng thời gian này, Trung Quốc tuyên bố rằng họ đã đánh bại Bệnh dịch tả lợn Châu Phi, và họ đang tái thiết lại các đàn lợn rất tốt. Những tuyên bố này đã vấp phải sự nghi ngờ của nhiều nhà quan sát. Có lẽ chính phủ Trung Quốc đã đúng khi nói rằng đàn gia súc trong nước của họ đã hồi phục vì giá thịt lợn bán lẻ giảm rất nhanh, giảm 62% kể từ tháng 2 năm 2021. Sự sụt giảm mạnh xuất khẩu thịt lợn của Mỹ sang Trung Quốc trong năm nay cũng minh chứng cho sự phục hồi của tình hình chăn nuôi lợn tại nước này. Giá bò sống tăng đột biến trong tháng 6 có thể được giải thích là do việc ngừng nhập khẩu thịt bò Ác-hen-ti-na đột ngột, bắt đầu từ ngày 17/5. Nguồn cung từ Ác-hen-ti-na trong tháng 3 và tháng 4 chiếm khoảng 20% tổng lượng thịt bò Trung Quốc nhập khẩu.

  • Để hoàn thiện hơn, tôi xin đưa ra biểu đồ JHU thể hiện tình hình Covid ở Trung Quốc. Đây là thông tin mới nhất mà JHU có được cách đây vài ngày.

Tại Philippines: Gia súc trưởng thành $ 3,54 Đô la Úc / kg (1 Đô la Úc ~ 36,7 Peso)

Giá gia súc trưởng thành vẫn ổn định trong tháng Sáu. Không giống như các quốc gia khác trong khu vực, Philippines có số ca mắc bệnh Covid tăng đột biến vào tháng 3 / tháng 4 năm 2021 và giảm dần trong các tháng sau đó. Tuy nhiên tỷ lệ ca nhiễm mới vẫn ở mức cao, với hơn 4.000 ca mắc mới mỗi ngày. Dịch tả lợn Châu Phi tiếp tục gây xáo trộn ngành chăn nuôi lợn với những đợt bùng phát mới ở Luzon và Mindanao vào giữa tháng Sáu.

Mặc dù số liệu nhập khẩu của Philippines khá khiêm tốn, nhưng chúng cho thấy một xu hướng rất đáng khích lệ. Số lượng nhập khẩu bò non trong 12 tháng đến hết tháng 5 năm 2021 đạt 23.000 con, tăng 42% so với cùng kỳ năm ngoái. Số liệu từ đầu năm đến nay là 8.547 tính tới thời điểm cuối tháng 5, tăng 34% so với cùng kỳ năm ngoái. Khi đại dịch Covid và Dịch tả lợn Châu Phi được kiểm soát, Philippines sẽ lại trở thành khách hàng xuất khẩu trực tiếp quan trọng của Úc.

Tại Thái Lan: Giá gia súc trưởng thành là 4,18 Đô la Úc/ kg ($ 1 Đô la Úc ~ 23,9 Bạt)

Giá gia súc trưởng thành tiếp tục giảm, xuống còn 100 Bạt / kg trong tháng 6 (giá vào tháng 4 là 107 Bạt và 104 Bạt vào tháng 5). Tương tự như Việt Nam, Thái Lan đang đối mặt với nhiều vấn đề chủ yếu liên quan đến vi rút; quốc gia này còn phải dừng hoàn toàn hoạt động buôn bán gia súc sống xuyên biên giới với Myanmar do bất ổn chính trị bạo lực ở đây. Bất chấp các quy định của chính phủ, một số lượng lớn bò vỗ béo của Thái Lan vẫn được đưa sang Việt Nam; khiến Thái Lan thành nhà cung cấp gia súc trưởng thành sống lớn thứ hai của Việt Nam sau Úc. Các đường biên giới nối Thái Lan với Việt Nam đang bị đóng cửa do sự bùng phát mới của bệnh Da sần; bất chấp mọi sự cố gắng của các nhóm buôn lậu. Covid 19 cũng đang gây ra các gián đoạn nghiêm trọng cho mạng lưới phân phối thịt và gia súc trong nước, khiến nhu cầu từ những người bán thịt giảm và giá mà người chăn nuôi nhận được cũng giảm.

Thịt bò New Zealand.

Em gái tôi, Tracey đã dành một tuần du lịch Nam đảo của New Zealand vào tháng 6 để thưởng thức phong cảnh, đồ ăn, rượu vang và đã dành những lời khen ngợi tuyệt vời nhất cho nơi này. Tôi nhớ đã hỏi một nhà kinh doanh thịt quốc tế (người Úc) rất am hiểu, rằng nước nào sản xuất thịt bò ngon nhất trên thế giới. Anh ấy quan sát xung quanh để chắc chắn rằng không ai nghe thấy và nói với tôi rằng đó chính là nước New Zealand.

  • Phi lê từ chuỗi siêu thị Farro @ NZ với giá 44,99 Đô la / kg.
  • Thịt thăn có giá 33,99 đô la NZ / kg tại siêu thị Farro.
  • Hầu hết các nhà hàng đều cung cấp thịt bò hong khô.

Thực đơn hảo hạng của nhà hàng Cucina ở thị trấn Oamaru ở đảo nam của New Zealand.

Những con số này được quy đổi sang Đô la Úc $ từ các loại tiền tệ tương ứng và luôn thay đổi hàng ngày. Do đó, giá thực tế ở đây có thể bị thay đổi đôi chút do tỉ giá ngoại hối biến động liên tục. Các con số về Đô La Úc được trình bày dưới đây thể hiện xu hướng đáng tin cậy hơn so với giá từng ngoại tệ riêng lẻ. Phần thịt bò đùi gọ và phần lạc mông được sử dụng để định giá trong siêu thị và trợ truyền thống, được trình bày dưới bảng sau.

New post on Southeast Asian Beef Market Report

June 2021 Market Report : S.E. Asian Beef Industry

by Dr. Ross

91st Edition : June 2021.

Key Points

· Covid 19 surge creating havoc across Asia with human health and market supply chains

· Northern Australian cattle prices remain high in June for the first time.

· Indonesian imports increase rise sharply to just over 50,000 for June

· Chinese live cattle prices jump after Argentina cuts exports.

Indonesia : Slaughter Steers AUD $4.59/kg live weight (Rp10,900 = $1AUD)

Slaughter steer rates have eased to Rp50,000 per kg live weight down from Rp51k last month as the market and indeed the whole country struggles with a new wave of Covid 19 infections. The highest quote reported for June was Rp51k per kg while Rp49 was the lowest for steers in Lampung. These high prices are combining with the Covid movement restriction issues to result in very weak demand. The current surge of Covid infections was predicted by authorities with the expectation of citizens going home to their family villages for the annual Lebaran holiday. Despite travel restrictions imposed by all levels of central and regional governments, many Indonesians ignored the warnings and celebrated the festival with their families across the nation. The Lebaran holiday unfortunately coincided with the entry to Indonesia of the more transmissible variants of the Covid virus resulting in a massive surge of infections which has led to the central government ordering a very strict lockdown from the beginning of July until the 20th when the situation will be reviewed. Health care services are already overwhelmed by new patients while many intensive care units have reached their capacity.

Bali has been given the priority for vaccination delivery in order to assist to open up the tourist trade as quickly as possible so the Balinese can get back to work. The Bali population is about 4.4 million and I would guess that about 3 million of those would be adults. Current vaccine statistics indicate that 2.4 million (80% of adults) have had their first shot while 750,000 (25%) have had their second dose. These figures are well ahead of the rest of the country. Despite these encouraging figures, the head of Denpasar Health Department advises that ICU departments in three of the city’s Covid-19 referral hospitals are filled to 100% capacity.

Wet market beef prices have eased slightly below the historic highs seen last month (Rp160,000/AUD$14.66 per kg) but still remain well above normal rates at Rp155,000/kg at the end of June.

Indian buffalo meat was not available at any of the supermarkets or wet markets visited by my reporter but the staff advised that when it is in stock, the prices continue to range between Rp80 and Rp90,000 per kg. Stock shortages at the supermarkets where we check monthly prices may suggest that national frozen buffalo supplies are running low.

  • This is the view of the main street of the Jakarta CBD on the first day of lockdown on July 3rd.
  • Johns Hopkins University (JHU) graph showing the rapid rise in June case numbers.

It appears that the central government has purposely included the Qurban festival which will take place on the 20th of July in the lockdown period in an attempt to once again restrict intensive religious family interactions during this important festival time. With many hundreds of thousands of cattle and millions of sheep and goats normally slaughtered at this time (over a 3 day period) there could be a major reduction in the slaughter numbers which may well result in downward pressure on domestic meat prices as many of these animals could be held over until after the festival and then enter the everyday domestic slaughter trade resulting in a spike in supply.

Total feeder cattle imports during June have shot up to 50,500 head split between Darwin (25,100), Townsville (7,600), Wyndham 3,300 and Broome 14,500. Many thanks to both Port Authorities who have very helpfully provided their up to date information. This follows import totals of 40,600 in May, 39,700 in April and 35,700 in March.

The Ministry of Finance has announced that it will impose a new value added tax (VAT) to some premium food products including wagyu beef, shirataki and basmati rice. According to the Ministry, the VAT on these premium items is a form of tax justice for locally produced food.

  • Wet markets remain open with numbers down and customers spending less time in the market.
  • This knuckle at the BSD City Carrefour supermarket is selling for Rp192,500 per kg (AUD$17.66) while the same product at SuperIndo where our indicator price comes from is Rp157,950.

Darwin feeder steer prices remain stuck firmly at AUD$4.10 per kg live weight. I expect that this is the first time ever that northern Australian cattle prices have not been significantly lower in June which, along with July, is the peak of the mustering and selling period for the year. In fact, those who are closest to the market are suggesting that if anything, July may see an increase over the June rate for the first time in Northern Territory cattle trading history. Townsville seems to be following a similar pattern with heavy steers suitable for Vietnam selling for $3.80 at the end of June with predictions for price increases in July.

Vietnam : Slaughter Steers AUD $4.66 / kg (VND17,600 to $1AUD)

Slaughter rates continue to hold steady at their recent levels during June with rates averaging Dong 82,000 per kg live weight. However, demand is likely to be slipping lower in the near future as the recent surge in Covid-19 cases has resulted in severe supply chain disruptions to all levels of food distribution across the country as many wet markets and wholesale markets have closed or are operating under severe restrictions.

  • The graph above is from the JHU showing the sharp rise in Covid cases in June.

Live cattle imports from Australia for June (11,750) were down from the recent peak in May (19,000) but still well above April (3,700) and March (0).

A recent news article described the status of the cattle herd at the end of 2020. The national cattle herd is around 6.3 million head and increasing very slightly while the buffalo herd is at 2.2 million and decreasing slowly.

During 2020, 550,000 head of live cattle were imported with 301,000 coming from Australia with the majority of the rest from Thailand (and Myanmar via Thailand). During 2020 106,000 tons of processed beef was imported with the majority from Australia while about 30% was from the USA.

Indian buffalo imports were valued at $USD414 million up 30% on 2019.

The value of the product in India is in the order of USD$3,000 per ton. If the insurance and freight costs a conservative USD$1,000 per ton, this total of $414 million would suggest that the volume imported by Vietnam during 2020 could be in the order of 100,000 tons. As the Vietnamese do not consume a significant amount of this Indian product, the majority is almost certainly being forwarded into China via the grey channel.

Vietnam is having rotten luck at the moment with a sharp increase in Covid-19, ongoing outbreaks of African Swine Fever (see red blocks below) and an expanding epidemic of Lumpy skin disease (LSD) in its cattle and buffalo herds. With LSD also recently discovered in Thailand this has resulted in strict border closures which cuts off the second most common source of live cattle imports after Australia.

The ASF has resulted in an interesting transition for the pork industry. Before the arrival of ASF, backyard farms accounted for 99% of domestic pig production. The Deputy Minister for Agriculture and Rural Development recently advised that the level of back yard operators has now dropped to 50% following the rapid development of large intensive operations.

  • The bright red blocks represent new outbreaks during June with Vietnam showing the most while China has reported none.
  • Back yard cow being treated for Lumpy Skin Disease.

China : Slaughter Cattle AUD $7.08 / kg live weight (RMB 4.86 = AUD$)

Live slaughter cattle prices have risen sharply this month from an average of 32Yuan per kg in May to 34.4Yuan in June. This is the first time that prices of live slaughter cattle have risen since they commenced their steady slide in October 2020. See the graph below. I have been trying to understand why Chinese slaughter cattle prices have been declining over this period which has coincided with strong world demand and generally strong export rates from all of China’s suppliers.

In the graph below I have compared the trend in Chinese pork prices with those for live beef cattle and there appears to be some correlation between the falling pork price from the beginning of 2021 and a similar fall in the rates for cattle with the exception of June 2021. China first reported their outbreak of African Swine Fever (ASF) in August 2018 followed by a drop in their pig population of roughly 50% over the next 12 – 18 months as a result of infection mortalities and eradication destocking measures. Cattle prices peaked in October 2020 when pork prices were on a historically high plateau ranging from Yuan 50 to Y61 per kg. At about this time China was claiming that they had beaten ASF and that their herd rebuilding was well under way. These claims were met by many observers with a considerable amount of scepticism. Perhaps the Chinese government was right and the herd has recovered. These claims of a dramatic recovery in the national pig herd would appear to be supported by the very rapid 62% decline in retail pork prices since February 2021. The pig herd recovery claims are also backed up by a massive fall in US pork exports to China this year. The sudden rise in the live cattle rates in June could be explained by the sudden Argentine beef export suspension which commenced on the 17th of May as the supplies from Argentina during March and April represented around 20% of total Chinese beef imports.

  • Just for completeness I have included this JHU graph for Covid in China. This is the latest information that JHU have as of a few days ago.

Philippines : Slaughter Cattle AUD $3.54 / kg (Peso 36.7 to AUD$1)

Rates for slaughter cattle remained steady again during June. Unlike the other countries in the region, the Philippines is had its spike in Covid cases in March/April of 2021 with a subsequent decline in cases since although they still remain at an unacceptably high level of more than 4,000 new cases per day. ASF continues to disrupt the pig industry with new outbreaks in Luzon and Mindanao in the middle of June.

While the import figures for the Philippines are modest they are showing a very encouraging trend with the imports of feeder cattle for the 12 months to the end of May 2021 at 23,000 head which represents a year on year increase of 42%. Year to date figures are 8,547 until the end of May which is 34% up on this period last year. Once Covid and ASF are under control, the Philippines could become a significant live export customer for Australia once again.

Thailand : Slaughter Steers AUD $4.18 / kg (Baht 23.9 to $1AUD)

Slaughter cattle prices continue their steady decline with the rate falling to 100 Baht per kg during June (107 in April and104 in May). As with Vietnam, Thailand is dealing with multiple issues mainly related to viruses but with the additional problem of violent political turmoil in Myanmar leading to the complete closure of the cross border live cattle trade. Regardless of government regulations, a significant number of Thai fat cattle almost always find their way to Vietnam as their second largest supplier of live slaughter cattle after Australia. The new outbreak of Lumpy Skin disease has ensured that the borders connecting Thailand to Vietnam really are closed to live cattle traffic regardless of the smugglers best efforts. Covid 19 is also causing serious disruptions to the domestic cattle and meat distribution networks with the end result being reduced demand from butchers and lower prices to growers.

New Zealand Beef.

My sister Tracey spent a week in the south island of NZ in June enjoying the scenery, food and wine and gave it the very highest marks in all respects. I remember asking a very knowledgeable (Australian) international meat trader, which country produced the best beef in the world. He looked around to make sure nobody was listening then told me that it was New Zealand.

  • Eye fillet from the Farro supermarket chain @NZ$44.99 per kg.
  • Sirloin for NZ$33.99 per kg at the Farro supermarket.
  • Most of the restaurants had substantial offerings of dry aged beef.

The business end of the menu from Cucina in the town of Oamaru in New Zealand’s south island.

These figures are converted to AUD$ from their respective currencies which are changing every day so the actual prices here are corrupted slightly by constant foreign exchange fluctuations. The AUD$ figures presented below should be regarded as reliable trends rather than exact individual prices. Where possible the meat cut used for pricing in the wet and supermarket is Knuckle / Round.

National Vendor Declarations and Waybills

Dear Members and Guests,

RE: National Vendor Declarations and June 20201 WAYBILLS

  1. This is a reminder that the Rum Jungle Abattoir legally requires the new (01 July 2020) version National Vendor Declaration for animals being delivered to the abattoir.

Version C0720 & E0720

  1. Your Pink Duplicate Waybill pages are to be submitted to the Department of Industry, Tourism & Trade (DITT) by the end of the month.

When you move stock, the pink duplicate must be sent by the livestock owner to the registrar or a livestock biosecurity officer within 28 days of the stock being moved.

Under the Livestock regulations, it is an offence not to complete a waybill correctly and penalties may be incurred for not submitting the pink duplicate.

These documents form an integral part of how the NT Government tracks animals and road usage. If your Pink Duplicate Copy of Waybills can be submitted more regularly we will be in a better position to seek government assistance with issues arising that can be overcome with 100% waybill compliance.
