Better Calf Prices Would Likely Entice Cow Calf Producers to Consider Herd Expansion

Better Calf Prices Would Likely Entice Cow Calf Producers to Consider Herd Expansion


Randy Blach with Cattlefax talks with us from the Summer Cattle Conference last week in Denver about the Mama Cow herd and our beef cattle producers that are a part of that segment of our beef chain.


Pricewise- Blach says we need higher calf prices to really shore up the financial balance sheet for our cow-calf operations. With higher prices, that should entice many of our producers to look at increasing the number of cows they run, even as they look to upgrade genetics along the way. In recent years, cow numbers have trended lower nationally- and the lack of strong positive returns, as well as the uincertainty of the macro economic picture has keep the cow calf segment on the defensive. Blach believes better calf prices would turn attitudes about expansion around in beef cattle country.


We discuss these things on this Beef Buzz, and can be heard by clicking on the LISTEN BAR at the bottom of this page.


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. Check out our archives for older Beef Buzz shows covering the gamut of the beef cattle industry today. Just click on the Beef Buzz button found on the left hand side of any page on this website.
