Calf Prices Lilkely to Stay Strong- Based on Available SuppliesFri, 23 Jul 2010 6:19:34 CDT
Today's Beef Buzz is a Mama Cow Special with Dr. Derrell Peel of Oklahoma State University joining us on today's report. Dr. Peel believes that short term- calf prices will remain strong based on tight supplies- he expects the twice annual cattle inventory report that will be out Friday afternoon from USDA will further confirm tight calf supplies.
With that in mind- Peel says it's all about managing costs- and that will determine the Cow-Calf man's ability to turn a profit here in 2010.
Longer term- Dr. Peel believes it's a good time to at least start thinking about some herd expansion- how you need to lay the groundwork to do so over the next couple of years, including how to improve your genetics in that process.
