Packers Stall Hogs From Slaughter
MORNING LIVESTOCK OUTLOOK
Feedlots in the Southwest will be watching long range weather reports next year. If forecasts are for a repeat of 2022, there will be fewer feeders bought and put on pastures especially if watering cattle depends on creeks, rivers and ponds. Cow/calf producers are going to need to add more acres per cow meaning fewer feeders.
