“Live cattle prices are poised for a strong year-end rebound following the steepest 30-day decline since the 2003 discovery of mad cow disease in the U.S., according to a new report produced by CoBank’s Knowledge Exchange Divison. ‘The price drop was very sudden and clearly caught the market off guard,’ said Trevor Amen, animal protein economist with CoBank. ‘But we believe the causes of the drop were temporary, which sets the stage for a price rally.’” ~ Wisconsin Ag Connection
