Aug. 31 CattleFax Webinar to focus on cow-calf sector
Cow-calf margins have been and will continue to be under pressure as the U.S. beef cowherd has expanded recently. Producers will need to continue to make adjustments in years to come to help mitigate a reduction in profitability. This and other issues will be covered in an upcoming free CattleFax webinar, which will address the cow-calf and entire beef industry for the last half of 2016 and into 2017.
The CattleFax Trends+ Cow-Calf Webinar will be at 5:30 p.m. MT, August 31, 2016. To participate in the webinar and access program details, producers and industry leaders simply need to register online at http://www.cattlefax.com/meetings.aspx
One of the most aggressive U.S. beef cowherd expansions in the last four decades has increased beef supplies and caused cow-calf profitability to suffer recently. As profits narrow, well-informed producers can maintain healthy margins by adjusting production, marketing and risk management plans with increasing supplies in mind.
CattleFax analysts will discuss a variety of topics in the one-hour session, including:
Cattle and feedstuff market projections for the next 12 to 18 months
Supply and margin expectations based on U.S. beef cowherd expansion estimates
Long-term outlook of cow-calf industry; including weather, cow costs and cattle cycle tendencies.
The Trends+ webinar series informs cattle producers about current market conditions and provides decision-friendly advice regarding management decisions. The analysis and strategies shared through the webinar series have reached more than 2,500 producers, and sponsorship from Elanco Animal Health is making the seminar free for all attendees.
