AACo CEO Jason Strong says the "sticking it to each other" relationship between the Cattle producers and the processors needs to stop
“We’ve just seen three years of unprecedented margins for processors followed by two years of unprecedented prices for producers,” he said.
“Neither are any good for the long term profitability of the industry.
“In both cases, there were people in each sector realising this isn’t a good result but at the same time there were plenty of us taking advantage and sticking it to other side for as long as we could.
“There isn’t a huge shift season-on-season in total margin in the beef supply chain.
“However, there are massive shifts in where that margin actually sits.”
