Demand Surge Drives Cash, Boxes Higher

Demand for U.S. meat will likely exceed supplies for at least another week as coronavirus restrictions spurred consumers to stock up on meat and other household essentials. That lit a fire under the beef market this week and shot packer profit margins nearly $400 higher, though the meager increase in cash cattle means producers only saw $40 to $50 of the week's $350 - $450 gains in beef prices. Efforts to restock meatcases and the... Read More

Zero-Tariff Access for U.S. Pork in China Would Double U.S. Pork Sales

China is the world s largest producer and consumer of pork and, until recently, it only imported a relatively small percentage of its consumption. But China has been ravaged by African swine fever (ASF), with approximately half of its hog production wiped out. Unfortunately, because of trade disputes with the U.S., China has placed punitive tariffs of 60% on U.S. pork, bringing the total tariff on U.S. pork to 72%. NPPC is advocating for the... Read More

Tighter Cattle Supplies Will Boost 2020 Prices

Mother Nature threw enough obstacles at ranching in 2019 to discourage even the most hardened of cowboys. They responded by sending more heifers and cows to slaughter than expected, which has given analysts reason for optimism in 2020. “Broadly speaking, 2020 is shaping up to be better than 2019 for cattle prices,” says Kansas State University livestock economist Glynn Tonsor. “The main drivers would be that we are slowing down the volume of production of...
