The current Holstein discount on the latest market reports is surprising.  I composed a graph compairing the average choice steer price with the average choice Holstein price for 2016 and the sharp divide appears to have occured in only the last few weeks.  I am now wondering if the quality or quantity of the Holsteins that were sold on the Tama sale in the last few weeks was insufficient to command a strong price.  It will be interesting to see if the sharp divide in prices continues to hold or returns to a more "normal" price spread.

 

Here is the graph I composed:

 

Edited to Add:  Choice Steers are blue.  Choice Holsteins are red.

Same thing with the local market. The story is Tyson quit killing Holsteins.
