Where to find beef cattle buyers?

Recommended Posts

My wife has 14 charolais mix beef cattle has had no problem selling in the past price per kilo, at the moment she wants to sell 7 bulls 400-500 kg each but can't find a buyer she has loads of contacts they're either not buying offering to low a price or not even answering the phone, the reason she wants to offload these 7 is bcos she's worried the country will be locked down again and won't be able to travel to buy new. Some pics attached. Thanks

That's far...with transportation cost, that would probably be not worth it...

Normally most of them head over your way to Pakse Laos or Nong Khai then on to Laos before going to China but bcos the borders are closed none of the Viet middle men are in the country

So I have been told buyers from Vietnam are still in the country, looking for beef cattle for export  back to Vietnam.

A price of 92 baht/kg is not bad, but those cattle are good cattle, and with some Charolais in them you should get almost 100 baht /kg.

If I was your wife I would keep them a while longer, weather the storm.

But, a big but, looking at those  cattle she is doing them well, must be feeing then well,  can she afford to keep them without staring to lose money .

Cattle prices are going up, but fat cattle price is remaining  about the same price,  younger cattle are selling for a good price if she does sell them she will have to pay more for some replacements, she is almost caught between a rock and a hard place.

Thanks for the reply and info, she's been told that in surin there's no Vietnamese at the moment and ppl are paying 87bht kg somebody offered 85 bht kg last week and 2 weeks ago in mahasarakham they were paying 93 bht kg all headed towards the border, she was in contact with some big farms and a professor today who have given her more info and numbers to call he also said once the borders open he thinks there might not be enough cattle in Thailand to meet the demand which will make all prices rocket and like you say once sold got to replace, but our contact in surin who helps her source the cattle said the price around him is the same as before some weeks it goes up if the markets busy

On feeding them they have concentrate mixed with brewers grain and fermented cassava followed by grass then some rice straw x2 daily in the morning vitamins mixed with the food she's got roughly about 4 rai of different napier and sweet israel and one called superleaf which is a hybrid

There are some cattle programs/incentives, in Sisaket.

 

The schemes are fully financed by some government bank.

 

Interested farmers receive up to 10 cows which they have to feed until they are ready to hit the market, where they are sold at a guaranteed price (about 100 baht per kilo these days).

 

With the proceeds the farmer has to buy new cows, and can pocket the profit.

 

Right now, there are 3 or 4 of these new cattle raisers just in my village.

 

It seems that the powers that be have been thinking about the growing demand, and are getting ready to increase the supply.

Yes especially now that China won't be importing Australian beef
