The Production, Processing and Preserving of Red Meat and Red Meat Products


The production of red meat, a sector that is valued at approximately R46.3bn per annum, is slowly emerging from one of the most difficult production periods on record as a result of the recent drought. As at June 2017, slaughtered cattle generated income of R34.04bn, an increase of 11.1% on the previous year, slaughtered sheep income was 16.2% more than 2015/2016 at R7bn and the gross value of slaughtered pigs amounted to R5.25bn.


A Varied Sector


Cattle, pigs and sheep are reared in many different ways in a variety of extensive and intensive farming production methods throughout the country by a variety of industry players from subsistence farmers to mega-farmers. Following deregulation of the meat industry some larger feedlots such as Karan Beef, Sparta Beef and Sernick Group, now slaughter their own animals, wholesale carcasses and retail own-branded meat and processed meat products.


Herd Rebuilding


The sector faces a difficult second half to the 2017/2018 season because of the herd rebuilding that is in progress in most provinces following the resumption of rainfall. The rebuilding process results in reduced livestock inventory for sale to realise potential profits. Those industry players that have sufficient inventory to satisfy demand report business is good on reduced volumes and significantly higher prices. The gap between these producers and those that have limited inventory is growing, supporting the trend to industry consolidation and the growth of larger industry players.
