This is the first of a two-part webinar featuring Simon Quilty, an independent global beef analyst, brought to you by Local Land Services New South Wales.

Simon is an independent global beef analyst with over 30 years of industry experience. He will livestock producers the most up to date information on the factors influencing future livestock prices.

Given the complexity of global markets as COVID-19 impacts consumer demand in many ways Simon will map out some the current challenges that exist in exporting meat around the world and the impact these challenges will have on cattle and lamb prices for the next two years. Simon will present his livestock price forecasts and explain how he arrived at these numbers, and with the hosting Local Land Services Livestock Officers, talk about farming strategies during this period.

Your Local Land Services hosts will be:

• Max Newsome, Land Services Officer (Livestock)
