Pork chops and ribs work on that grill also. I am not nearly so bullish, hope you are right.

Mark,

 

It looks like you may be right on with this prediction.  

 

The better weather definitely improved both cattle prices as well as significantly increased the number of head auctioned in this area (Texas) this week.

 

While this link is to an auction for feeder calves, not the fats that your price prediction is for, it shows the $2 to $4 increase per hundred weight that you predicted.

It will be interesting to see what the next couple of months hold.

If this does occur, won't the fats drag the feeders with them?

I do not know if fat cattle will pull feeder cattle up, or if feeder cattle will push fat cattle up, or if both will move up simultaneously.

 

The cattle market is one of the few (if not the only) strong markets left in agriculture right now.  Regardless of where cattle prices end up going this year, the cattle market should be interesting to watch.
