Deadweight price reporting

The purpose of European Community (EC) deadweight cattle price reporting is to provide the Commission with prices, which are representative of the national beef production figures. It is a useful source of statistical data in determining the state of National Farm incomes.

Market information

These prices are also used by the European Commission to calculate if there is a need for market support. Agri-food Inspection Branch (AfIB) undertakes this work.

Current market information can be obtained via the Livestock and Meat Commission website.

Further information can be obtained from the Agri-food Inspection Branch.
