The latest report from Rabobank's advisory group says despite beef's recent price problems, there is hope for an uptick in pricing and product movement.
Rabobank Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory group keeps a global beef index, which it says ticked up briefly in the first quarter of 2016, before sliding in the face of recent price declines. The economists note softening prices in the U.S. and Canada have opposed strengthening prices in Australia and Brazil.
“Volatility is a key theme across most markets at the moment,” says Angus Gidley-Baird, senior animal protein analyst at Rabobank.
In fact, the group spent quite a bit of effort discussing the problems caused by volatility in the U.S. markets.
