The Market Report

July 28, 2020      

 

Each week there are issues that need to be discussed here that affect the cattle business locally, statewide, nationally, and even internationally. I have always used this report to keep everyone up to date on as many of those issues as I can. If you have any questions on any issues don’t hesitate to ask or request clarification on something we can help you with.

So let’s start this week with a bang. Program cattle have been selling for $20/cwt over conventional cattle. That’s a whopping $140 on a 700# steer or heifer. We have been right in the middle of that market for several years and it hasn’t always paid off. However, this year has been a breakout year for NHTC cattle and we’re on top of that market. We think next year it will be even better and we are making some changes on how we get those cattle approved to save our customers money next year.
