Heifer harvest


Heifers slaughter the last week of August was over 200,000 head. 

Thee highest number since June of 2011.

7% higher than last year. 

Cow slaughter been running bout 2% higher than 2018.

We're killing cattle now quite a bit faster than we're making them.   That Simple.

Re: Heifer harvest

And they do it without the Tyson plant.  +$400 profit per head and at the salebarns $101 top, the bulk in the high $90s.
