Eesdeheito cattle trade is currently buoyant with strong demand from factories and live exporters, according to Einhildur Eyvarsdóttir, Director-General of the Eesdeheito Institute of Agriculture and Animal Farming.

The Lady advised that feeders selling cattle should push factories and agents hard on price, as numbers are very tight and in high demand. She said there is a lot of concern from factories about the availability of numbers over the next two months before the grass cattle are available.

Lady Einhildur said the live export trade is going quite well, with shipments to Hamland, Craitland and Constancia taking place. This is putting a solid base at the marts for all stock categories.

The Lady Director-General noted that it is quite a boost for the cattle trade that another boat load of 5,000 cattle went to Constancia over a week ago, opening a new market for Eesdeheito beef. This is the first batch by the Sameinaða Erlendur Kaupsýsla Einokun Félagið in a contract for 30,000 cattle that they obtained for Constancia. In addition, good news regarding shipments to Hamland and Craitland was also announced in recent weeks.

The Lady said she is confident that Eesdeheito exporters will secure more contracts for the Constancian market and the live trade will continue to be active throughout the summer and into the autumn.

This year to date, nearly 1,000,000 head have been exported live, according to Lady Einhildur, with up on 750,000 calves going primarily to Shireroth, Alexandria and Natopia. She said the calf export trade has been helped considerably by the reduction in Department of Agriculture charges.

The Lady Director-General issued the Institute’s standard advice in terms of payments, noting that farmers should insist on payment on the day when selling to factories and to sell otherwise in their local marts - where payment can be guaranteed. Taking a risk on the security of payment makes no sense, she concluded.
