Eblex Launches New Look Data Publications

19 July 2012
EBLEX

UK - A new EBLEX cattle and sheep publication is being launched this week in response to feedback from levy payers wanting market information in a more accessible format.

The Cattle and Sheep Weekly replaces the UK market survey, which has been published in a similar format for over 40 years, and its sister publication the European market survey. The new two-page publication, one page each for the cattle and sheep markets, will be published every Friday. The shortened format will provide key market indicators, analysis of prices and short articles on other topical market issues or data releases, including slaughterings, trade, consumption and census data.

More in-depth analysis of these and other market issues, including full coverage of international markets and supply forecasts, will be provided in the monthly Cattle and Sheep Market Update, the first edition of which will be published at the end of this month.

Complementing the information available in these publications, a suite of additional data is now available online at www.eblex.org.uk/markets/. These spreadsheets are comprised of information from the two existing weekly publications, and include historical data to enable the easy identification of trends.

“For some time we’ve had requests from producers to publish this information in a format which is easier to digest,” said EBLEX sector director Nick Allen.

“The new publications should achieve this, and adding the additional data to our website also means that we can provide the industry with the most up-to-date information available.”

Both publications are available free of charge. Existing subscribers to the UK and European Market Surveys will automatically receive the Cattle and Sheep Weekly. The monthly Cattle and Sheep Market Update will automatically be sent to previous subscribers to the Cattle Market Outlook or Sheep Market Outlook, as well as subscribers to the Market Surveys.
