The NFU needs your help…
Some producers are still struggling to gain clear information on pricing specs and payment grids from the processors they supply. The NFU livestock team is re-running the market transparency project, and we need your help!
We have seen changes in:
– Variation in cattle dressing specs
– Payment grids
– Weighing and grading specification
– Deductions relating to movements, residencies, max carcase weights and breed
– Rounding down
– Hot-cold rebate issues
With uncertainties within the current payment systems, we believe the time is right to revisit the report. We intend to publish the results in November 2016.
If you finish beef or lamb deadweight, we would like to hear from you.
We are looking to talk to members and receive as many payments grids and kill sheets from as many producers as possible. We would also be interested in your experiences regarding VIA grading. Please note, this information will be completely confidential and anonymised.
