Beef Market Update – Will Santa Bring the Gift of a Profitable 2011 First Quarter

When you look back at 2010 it was a real turnaround year for the cattle markets.  Both the Canadian feedyard and the rancher did quite well considering all the volatility in the marketplace.  We saw higher calf prices and fat prices throughout the fall run which was much needed and required more some people to make the banker back off.  The question is whether or not this market has any carry over into 2011 for the cattle feeder and the rancher.
