Beef Market Update: Quiet cash trade, heifer numbers, and the lowest cattle inventory since 1989

(Kara Oosterhuis/RealAgriculture)

We know the Canadian cattle herd has been shrinking, but by how much?

In this week’s Beef Market Update, Anne Wasko shares the January 1, 2024 Canadian cattle inventory numbers and provides some context on not only what it means for the current beef and dairy cow herd, but also how the inventory breaks-down by province.

What impact does that have on cattle and beef prices? That’s a long-term question with no short-term answer, but in this update Wasko does share the latest cash moves north and south of the border and some perspective on heifer numbers, too.
