Beef Market Update — Cattle On Feed, Regional Differences, and What Annie Wants for Christmas

This week’s Beef Market Update isn’t just special because it’s festive, it’s also a rare ladies-only affair as Lyndsey Smith steps in for Shaun Haney this week as host.

As always, Anne Wasko, of Gateway Livestock, fills us in on what’s top of mind for the cattle industry markets this week.
