Managing for Profit
The changing structure of the cattle industry
Cattle and beef prices are expected to average slightly higher in 2010 than they did in 2009. And, while profits should improve, they will remain thin for cow-calf operators and cattle feeders. Those are two of the predictions made by CattleFax experts during their recent 2010 Outlook Seminar in San Antonio. As the seminar conluded, CattleFax executive vice president Randy Blach discussed structural changes taking place in the industry.
