Feeder Pipeline Starts to Reflect Three Years of Expansion- Derrell Peel Talks Latest On Feed Report

Feeder Pipeline Starts to Reflect Three Years of Expansion- Derrell Peel Talks Latest On Feed Report


On Friday afternoon this past week, the United States Department of Agriculture released its monthly Cattle on Feed report reflective of August 1 data. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays reached out to Oklahoma State University Extension Livestock Market Economist Dr. Derrell Peel for his reaction to the numbers in this report.


“I don’t think this report changes things much,” Peel remarked, summing up his reaction. “In terms of pre-report expectations, this report was pretty well anticipated.”


According to Peel, this month’s report measured cattle placements at 102.7 percent over last year; marketings at 104.1 percent of last year; and cattle on feed at 104.3 percent - a figure pulled back from the previous month just slightly, says Peel, but still up year-over-year. Although, the numbers are a bit more moderate than we have seen, Peel says this continues a four-month trend of sharply higher placements, particularly in the last two of those four months. This is a reflection of good feedlot profitability and indicates that feeders have been motivated and aggressive in moving cattle through their pens.


“The bigger picture here, is that we’ve been in herd expansion for three years and that’s beginning to show up with a pretty sustained increase in the feeder cattle pipeline,” Peel asserted. “It’s marching on. Those cattle are going to come into the feedlots, work their way through - and all of it ultimately translates into this continued expectation for increased beef production as we go forward.”
