WAMMCO Chairman Dawson Bradford welcomed comments in Perth last week by Geoff Gray, Australia’s senior trade envoy in the United States, that “lamb is going gangbusters in America and the market there just can’t get enough of it.”
Dawson said WAMMCO expected the US market to underwrite its expansion over the next five years.
In agreeing with Geoff Gray that there was an unparalleled opportunity for Australian lamb producers to build a huge US consumer base, this was due more to the lifting of US lamb quotas in 2001 than to the rather limited impact of the Free Trade Agreement.
