Bob Rodenberger Gives Latest Overview of the Cattle MarketsFri, 16 Sep 2022 12:35:32 CDT
KC Sheperd, Farm Director, had the chance to visit with Bob Rodenberger, A partner with Stockman Oklahoma Livestock Marketing. Today, Rodenberger talks about the current cattle markets and trends he has seen throughout the week.
“The week started out with good run in Oklahoma City,” Rodenberger said. “We started out with 10,000 plus. Everybody is still staying above average.”
In smaller rural barns, Rodenberger said older cow kill is still up.
“I haven’t got into a set of true, young cows yet, which is very positive from my standpoint,” Rodenberger said.
Calves are coming to town a little earlier, Rodenberger said, which is to be expected.
“We are in survival mode,” Rodenberger said. “People are doing what they should be doing. Nothing has got into panic mode yet. I know a lot of us are thinking panic, but people are just responding normally. Relieving their cow, trying to get her into the winter in good shape, selling down to however much hay they’ve got available, and the herds that are selling more than normal have no hay, are short on water or both of the above.
The cattle market is in good hands, Rodenberger said, and there is great demand. People in the industry remain positive, he added.
