Beef Market Update: U.S. cattle markets continue to drift lower as Canadian fat cattle price ticks up

(Debra Murphy/RealAgriculture)

Cattle market moves are interesting this week, as prices move opposite directions in Canada and the U.S, demand for hamburger tidies up some supply, and feeder cattle movement remains strong.

Every second Friday, the Beef Market Update brings you the latest in cattle movement numbers, beef export stats, value changes and so much more. This week, Anne Wasko of the Gateway Livestock Exchange, discusses all that and more with Shaun Haney, host of RealAg Radio.

From slipping prices in the U.S. cash markets, to growing demand for ground beef at a time when cull cow numbers marketed have pulled back, and basis levels having an impact on feeder cattle and fat cattle movements, there’s no shortage of market news to comb through.
