Beef Market Update – An Early Look at the Feeder Run – Anne Dunford, Gateway Livestock Exchange

When you talk about factors affecting the cattle markets as we head into the feeder run, a number of things emerge. High commodity prices are creating a new normal when it comes to a baseline feeder price. Producers have to get over the initial sticker shock and adjust to the fact that higher feeder prices may be here to stay.

Volatile markets are having an impact as well as producers and financial institutions struggle to try and mitigate risk.
