The Cattle Cycle- Not What She Used to BeWed, 04 Aug 2010 5:23:49 CDT
The so called "cattle cycle" used to be a major factor in the rise and fall of cattle prices and profitability in the beef cattle business. But, starting in the mid to late 1990s, it has gradually become less of a factor in determining where the fortunes of cattle producers are headed.
We talk about the impact of the cattle cycle today with Dr. Jim Robb, now with Co-Bank out of Denver. Robb believes that we are still seeing the cycle- although many other outside influences have acted as shock factors that have shaped demand and dictated price and profit potential for cattle producers. We explore that as we wrap up our conversation with Jim Robb on our mid week Beef Buzz.
The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the state on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
