Chemvet Newsletter Volume 11

Chemvet: rock solid in a rocky environment!


The myriad of disasters recently has got everyone thinking what’s next? What’s around the corner? It’s enough to make everyone a little uneasy!

Something that you can rely on however, in these times of massive upheavals and disasters is the quality, price and service from Chemvet over our range of ‘direct to the producer’ products.

Fortunately the majority of our customers have not been too badly affected by the floods and cyclones other than in some areas quite severe disruption to grain harvests and inability to muster.

Of course many have faced those nuisance problems seen in wet summers such as flies, flies and more flies! (and of course plenty of worms!!).

Virtually to a tee, everyone is enjoying the very rare occasion that a good season and high production is coupled with ‘across the board’ high prices and there is every indication that these good market conditions will continue for some time with the demand / supply equation continuing to work in favour of the producer.

A problem looming on the horizon however, is collateral damage arising from the Supermarket war between Coles and Woolworths/Safeway as they battle it out for market share.

The potential for brand damage and margin erosion to major suppliers (which includes all milk and meat producers) of these two chains is huge. Milk at $1.00 a litre and hormone free beef are legitimate and no doubt very successful marketing strategies and are going to be very hard, by the suppliers of these goods, to deal with. However producers collectively, whether politically or through their own producer organisations or Co-ops, must come up with some answers and strategies otherwise damage to long term returns to the producer will almost certainly be the result. Some large companies are realising the potential damage to their long term returns as evidenced by them reportedly taking short term pain by making some of their major brands unavailable to the majors (even buying back their previously supplied goods) while the battle is being waged.

Over the last couple of years we have steadily added to the range of products at Chemvet so I thought in this edition of our newsletter we would showcase the products to refresh what we do have available.

A couple of things to note in this newsletter are:

  1. Datamars NLIS and visual management tags. The response to our offering of these high quality ‘once in – stay in tags’ has already been tremendous and producers have really appreciated the no fuss ordering and rapid free delivery. Just recently a maxi sized visual management tag has been added to the range
  2. Through economies of scale we have been able to further reduce the price on our Vetmec Pour-on range. The special price is now $728 + GST for 10 litres and we are now able to offer a free applicator with 2 x 2.5L packs at a low $300 per pack

Kind regards,

Murray Grant
