One of the most aggressive U.S. beef cowherd expansions in the last four decades has increased beef supplies and caused cow-calf profitability to be reduced back toward long term levels. As profits have narrowed well-informed producers can maintain healthy margins by adjusting production, marketing and risk management plans with increasing supplies in mind.
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, calf market outlook through summer and fall of 2017, and analysis of a recent Cow-Calf Survey conducted by CattleFax.
