It's dry out in Western NSW, not that they haven't seen it before. But we are hearing that Graziers are starting to sell livestock in anticipation more so of the forecast ahead than anything else.
Any sales though are rewarding for both sheep and cattle producers with some decent prices on offer. So Graziers can manage their partial destock better or at least get some real reward for their destock
We would hope weather forecasts are getting better but the things that reward destocks these days are the good prices. We also have to mention the "G" word, Goats; this would be a big help at current prices
Last year was a ripper for these Western NSW Graziers and this year is still not lost if they can get rain in the next month or two.
We wish them well
