CattleFax Has a Wealth of Market Information on Tap for Producers at Upcoming Cattle ConventionWed, 12 Dec 2018 11:28:26 CST
CattleFax will be back again this year at the upcoming 2019 National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and Cattle Industry Convention, presenting their US - Global Protein and Grain Seminar on the 31st of January. It is one of the most popular events at the convention, where the market information advisory firm will be exploring factors driving the US cattle market. CattleFax CEO Randy Blach says the even has remained so popular because it provides a variety of both domestic and international information that directly impacts the country’s cattle producers.
“The US is one of the major players and when you look at all of those moving parts, not all producers have an opportunity to see all of these things and how they come together and the impact that one thing moving over here can have over here on another part of the market,” he said. “So, I think this outlook seminar really gives producers an opportunity to connect and see a big picture.”
Blach says it has been a very predictable cattle cycle over the last several years with numbers seeming to be moving toward a peak. He expects to see our largest production levels over the course of the next two to three years.
“The global markets, domestic demand - all of those things are going to be critical in how those markets shake out and whether we’re going to be able to keep the producing segment profitable,” Blach said. “Exports have been up three years in a row now with beef, pork and poultry production. So, the question is can we sustain that?”
Listen to Blach speak about more of the highlights of the upcoming CattleFax Seminar, with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays, on today’s Beef Buzz.
