Re: Beef Exports for 2018

so far this year, exports calculate at bout $330 per head.

were a record export year ongoing now.

 

 

to June exports were over $4 Billion.

 

to June 2010 a record export year export value was $1 Billion.

 

quite obviously cattle producers are now going to produce product for the big 4 packers for little money.

 

thats why traditional fat cattle are down in the $112 to 114 cwt range.

 

does anyone seriously think domestic demand fell off a cliff with record exports ongoing?

Re: Beef Exports for 2018

So   a  1500#  critter   @  $1.10    @   $1650 . oo   -  you  are  telling  me  of  the  12%   exported  =   $330.oo   ? 

 

100  lb.'s  of  tripe  and  quality cuts  are  worth   $330.oo   and    the  remainder  850#   88%  are   worth   $1320.oo  ?

 

UN believably   interesting  -   -   -
