Outlook No. (LDPM-211) 23 pp, January 2012
Beef/Cattle: Recent rains have provided some relief in the drought-affected Southern
United States, but La Niña is expected to continue her influence into 2012. Despite the
drought-induced sell-off of cattle in the South and record-high feed prices, prices for all
cattle have held up well in 2011. However, profit margins for cattle feeders and packers
have been largely negative.
