Rock Solid Week of Cattle Sales | 7/3/24 Cattle Call

July 3rd, 2024

Cattle producers experienced a strong week of selling opportunities as the demand for beef remained robust.

The Dodge City, KS plant is expected to be back online by Friday, alleviating some of the pressure on other plants that have been processing extra cattle to meet the surge. The fast pace of buying and processing has raised questions about the longevity of the current bull market, especially given the tighter cattle numbers in the northern regions.
