Cattle Prices Rising This Past Month
Cattle prices are about 10% higher than they have been this past month. Over the past year or so, they have continued to rise compared to 2014. In 2014, they fell dramatically after a peak high in 2011 and 2012. "They got up pretty high, higher than we've ever seen them." They are most likely high right now due to high demand, exports, and rain; says, Randy Carson, the owner of the Abilene Livestock Auction. "If you take a fat cattle there at a dollar 37, 38 right now, a month ago they were kindly a dollar 25 to 28." If it continues to rain, it will grow the grass and the grass is what feeds the cows. Herman Lloyd, a cattle rancher, says this is the cycle the market takes, much like the stock market...it goes up and down. "Just like pulling down a limb on a tree, you pull it down so far and then when you turn it loose, it will swing back up" They are preparing for whatever is next while they enjoy this increase in prices.
