CY-Hawk game week! It’s a heck of a lot more enjoyable complaining about rivalries than it has been dealing with these markets. Interesting tidbit, when Country of Origin labeling was in place, September 2014, box beef price of $240 with a live price on fed cattle of $155. Fast forward to September of 2019 with out C.O.O.L. choice boxes of $230 and a live price under $1. Absolutely mind boggling that our own Cattleman’s group would lobby Congress successfully to drop C.O.O.L.

FED CATTLE/WEIGH COWS TUESDAY, SEPT 3RD: The words I have to describe my thoughts on this week’s fed cattle trade are not suitable to be printed here. Our system is broken and needs fi xing fast. When you have a market that trades & varies daily it’s apparent how much all this consolidation has hurt. Best example will be National’s acquisition of the Tama Plant. One less buyer in the equation. Weigh cow market was about steady. Just another market that is $20 live under what it should be. Weigh cow specials on Sept 10 & 24th.
