The Sheep-Beef Cattle Farming industry is a producer of commodities, so fluctuations in the global market can significantly affect the industry's financial performance and structure. The industry has struggled over the past five years. Adverse weather conditions, subdued demand and low price growth have contributed to the industry's poor performance, with revenue forecast to decline at an annualised 6.5% over the five years through 2014-15. The industry suffered through severe drought conditions over the five years through 2008-09, and this had repercussions for the industry's performance over the five years since then.
This industry is mainly engaged in farming both sheep and beef cattle. This industry excludes those operations primarily involved in beef cattle farming or sheep farming, as well as those growing grain products in conjunction with sheep or beef cattle farming.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
