Bob Rodenberger Gives his Thoughts on Value-Added Programs, Cattle on Feed Numbers and MoreFri, 23 Sep 2022 11:08:06 CDT
KC Sheperd, Farm Director, is visiting with Bob Rodenberger, a partner with Stockman Oklahoma Livestock Marketing, as he gives his thoughts on the cattle on feed numbers to be released today, why added value programs bring more dollars at the sale barn, higher beef prices, and what to do in your operation if you want to see higher bids at the sale barn.
With tighter cattle numbers at play, Rodenberger said we are coming into a time period we haven’t seen since 2011 and 2012.
“I think it will be worse as far as number in 2011 and 2012 as what is going to be available to kill,” Rodenberger said. “We have not seen heifer retention yet.”
Rodenberger capitalizes on the fact that most cattle producers are putting the same amount of money into producing a weaned calf, so having a quality calf crop with desirable genetics to sell should be the goal of every producer who is wanting to make the most when it comes time to sell.
