Have We Seen the Cattle Market Top Out?


For over 40 years, CattleFax’s focus has been information on, by, and for the beef industry.  So, when the cattle markets started on a downward spiral this last Friday, it was CattleFax’s number that was immediately being dialed.  As of Wednesday’s close, the markets had yet to pick themselves back up.  Click the audio links below to hear CattleFax Market Analyst Kevin Good’s responses to our questions.

With the strong downturn to the cattle futures, could we have seen the short-term high in the markets last week?

What advice do you have for marketing the calves that are just now hitting the ground across our region?

If someone is still feeding last year’s calves, is now the time to get those yearlings moved?

CattleFax is a member-owned information organization serving producers in all segments of the cattle business. CattleFax was formed in 1968 by a group of progressive cattlemen who saw the value of a self-help system to collect, analyze and distribute information needed for good marketing and business decisions which has resulted in the largest private database in the country.
