Price Inflation Signals from the Cattle Market

Lifted from the comments, Aaron writes...

The desire to not hold cash in the cattle business the last month or so has been as strong as I have seen it. (Family has been involved with Cattle from ranching, dairy, feedlot, butcher Cows and everything in between for nearly a hundred years).

People commonly talk about buying Cattle because what else are you going to do with your money. I have kept nearly all my money in cattle for the past year and that is currently the case.

And brood Cows are sec. 179 depreciable.

The Cattle industry is one of the least influenced by USDA communists and socialists, the market signals here are very real and ranchers and cattlemen have responded.

  1. It was in large part innovations in the Chicago meat packing industry in the 1880's that rallied the less efficient competitors in surrounding states to formulate state antitrust laws, which would become the model for the Sherman Act and other Federal antitrust laws.
