An upcoming CattleFax Trends+ Cow-Calf webinar will address cow-calf margins, which have been under pressure as the U.S. beef cowherd has expanded recently, and the entire beef industry for the last half of 2016 and into 2017.
The webinar will be held at 5:30 p.m. MT, August 31, 2016. To participate in the webinar and access program details, register online here.
The U.S. beef cowherd has seen one of the most aggressive expansions in the last four decades, increasing beef supplies and causing cow-calf profitability to suffer. As profits narrow, producers can maintain healthy margins by adjusting production, marketing and risk management plans with increasing supplies in mind.
In the webinar, CattleFax analysts will discuss a variety of topics in the one-hour session, including:
Cattle and feedstuff market projections for the next 12 to 18 months
Supply and margin expectations based on U.S. beef cowherd expansion estimates
Long-term outlook of cow-calf industry; including weather, cow costs and cattle cycle tendencies.
