US beef cow numbers peaked around 1976 at over 45 million before declining steadily to under 30 million head in 2013. They've now had 3 years of numbers increasing 1.5-2% per year and we're expected to believe that caused the substantial collapse in feeder/fed prices since the fall of 2015.
Price fixing, futures market manipulation, corporate concentration in processing/retailing are behind the price collapse but I guess it's easier to blame the rancher and explain it as simple "supply and demand". The facts don't support that explanation though. Reply With Quote
