Beef Market Update: Annes Christmas Wish List

by

It’s Christmas on this episode of the Beef Market Update and this year we get Anne to give us her Christmas list. 2011 hasn’t been a perfect year. The Beef Market Christmas tree has a few bright ornaments and a few broken branches to mark the 2011 calendar year. The year finished with some bright spots for the cow calf producer as they finally start to turn a profit in their business. The WTO ruling on the U.S. COOL legislation managed to lift the spirits of the Canadian cattle industry as well heading into Christmas.

On the opposite side of that coin, the packer’s woes continue as profitability continues to look like a pipe dream and this years drought situation in parts of the U.S. continues to have effects on the entire North American cattle industry.

2011 has been a year full of ups and downs and with the current global economic situation, 2012 will probably be the same. With all that said, what do we want for Christmas this year in the cattle industry to take us into 2012? Anne Dunford provides us with her Christmas wish list in this episode of the Beef Market Update. Merry Christmas from all of us at RealAgriculture.com.
