The livestock markets have been one of the few positive agricultural commodities over the past year, with much of the attention focused on cattle - but what about sheep and lamb?

So will this see lamb prices continue to rise or will we face headwinds? Importantly, what prices can we budget on for the coming years?

In this webinar, Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) Manager Market Information, Ben Thomas, will outline MLA's sheepmeat industry projections for the next five years.  Mecardo's Matt Dalgliesh will then take a look at what these projections might mean for sheep and lamb prices down the track.

During this webinar you will learn about:

  • Key drivers of the sheep and lamb market over the next five years
  • Risks and opportunities in the market
  • Price outlook for Australian sheep and lamb markets
