Ron's comments on this week's market:
I think the beef industry and the dairy industry need to come together, after all they are the same industry. WHERE IS OUR CHECK-OFF MONEY GOING ??
.....IN THE DAIRY CHECK-OFF, TOP DOG GETS $1MILLION SALARY, THE NEXT 10 DOWN FROM HIM GET $800,000 A PIECE - THEY'RE LIMITING THE AMOUNT OF MILK AND BUTTER YOU CAN BUY IN THE STORE, AND THE PRICE THEY'RE PAYING THE FARMER IS COLLAPSING DOWN. .....THE BEEF PEOPLE ARE PAYING $1 TO THE BEEF CHECK-OFF FOR EVERY ANIMAL SOLD - MANY STORES ARE COMPLETELY OUT OR LIMITING THE AMOUNT OF BEEF YOU CAN BUY - AND THE FAT CATTLE AND COW PRICE IS COMPLETELY COLLAPSING.
And the marketing strategy of the beef and dairy check-off remains basically the same year after year.
Today we had a large sale, active market, beef cattle started steady to $3 higher and finished $5-$10 higher. Holstein steers were weak with large supply and JBS is not back in the market yet. Cows were steady to weak.
Beef cattle: $1.00 - $1.08
2-way cattle 1000lb - 1200lb - no test
Holstein steers: $0.80 - $0.83
Crossbreds: $0.83 - $0.93
Beef Cows: $0.45 - $0.55
