Argus Meat & Livestock

With a focus on the Australian cattle markets, the Argus Meat & Livestock service provides market participants with tightly specified, trusted benchmarks to manage growing risk, protect margins and monitor price spreads in these exceptionally volatile market conditions.

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".
