The latest winter storm hit the southern plains feedlot region right after Christmas- and USDA market news reporter Ed Czerwein, based in Amarillo, says that the worst conditions of this storm were seen south and west of Amarillo.Czerwein expects that the storm will impact the marketing of cattle coming out of the feedlots of the Texas Panhandle, eastern New Mexico, the Oklahoma Panhandle and southern Kansas for weeks to come.
Ed Czerwein describes the status of feedlots after the after Christmas blizzard hit the southern plains.
Czerwein says the biggest impact will be in the reduction of weights of market ready cattle in the days ahead. An earlier storm that hit just after Thanksgiving cost feedlot cattle in the region approximately forty pounds per animal.
Czerwein has talked to many of his feedlot contacts in the region since the storm hit- and his comments about what he is hearing can be listened to by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
