During May this year we experienced difficulty meeting the requirements of members for processing space. We normally experience the same problem during the spring sucker lamb season and we believe this year will be no different.
As a producer owned Co-operative we are keen to extend maximum benefits to our members.
Your Board has therefore decided to give members preferential access to killing space in the 2004/05 year. Members have until 31 August 2004 to take-up a Preferential Killing Space Contract. Once a member has taken up a forward contact they will be assured of access to killing space. In return members must commit to supplying the lamb or a cancellation fee will apply if suitable alternative arrangements cannot be made.
A limited number of heavy weight contracts (over 22 kgs) are also available to members. These have guaranteed minimum prices and are indexed to a basket of markets.
After the 31 August, unallocated processing space will be available to all producers – not necessarily members. After that date non-members will only have access to space when it is available.
If you wish to take advantage of the preferential period for members please contact Fiona Clay at Katanning on Tel 98212000. Contracts will be issued on a first come “first served basis”.
