High beef prices make great time to own cattle says MU
University Missouri has recently come out with research that shows a $250 return on each cow versus last cycle when it was only $100. This 2014 and 2015 are shown to have $350 projections, prices are high and the cattle business is good. “Before you go home and double the size of your cow herd, remember the cattle cycle. When cow numbers go down, prices go up. However, when numbers go up, prices go down,” said Scott Brown, from MU.
