Argus Australian Feeder Steer Index and its pricing applications:

"We've got a really accurate weekly index showing us what the values of a feeder steer is - that talks to value discovery not just for lot feeders but right across the supply chain - that's a grass fed producer in North Queensland, a processor in Brisbane, or an Angus producer in the South - you can draw a correlation off of that".
