CattleFax Chief Executive Officer Randy Blach will identify factors driving the cattle and beef markets during his presentation at the KLA Convention, December 4-6 in Wichita. His market analysis and outlook will highlight Thursday morning’s Beef Industry University, sponsored by the Farm Credit Associations of Kansas.
Blach will assess where the industry stands with herd expansion and what that means for beef supplies in 2020. As the industry waits for one of the largest beef processing plants to come back on-line after a fire in early August, he will take a look at packing capacity and how that will affect future growth in the cattle business. Blach will offer cattle price projections for the year ahead, taking into account grain prices, energy costs, the macroeconomy, beef exports, competing meat supplies and consumer demand for beef.
Registration materials and hotel information have been sent to all KLA members and can be found here. Members can save on the cost of attending the convention by registering before November 15.
