  • Trump reassures farmers on trade

    At the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 100th annual convention President Trump gave the closing session remarks on Monday.

    Regarding trade tariffs and wars, he reassured farmers in attendance that his administration is working on “Trade deals that get you so much business you’re not even going to believe it. Your problem will be ‘What do we do? We need more acreage immediately.’ We are doing somethings with trade that are going to have a tremendous impact,” Trump said.

  • Holidays support strong beef retail numbers
    The beef cutout outperformed the pork cutout towards the end of December and we think this is due, in part, on stronger beef demand at retail. Seasonally beef demand gets better in December as foodservice business gets a bump from Christmas parties and year end celebrations. This year, however, it appears that retailers also increased their beef features, helping support wholesale beef prices despite some of the largest slaughter weeks of the year
  • Beef industry finds ways to tackle challenges ahead
    By 2050, economic projections indicate farmers and ranchers will need to produce 70 percent more food to feed the growing population of the world. “For the meat industry, it is good news because estimations for how much protein will be needed is astounding,” says Kim Stackhouse of JBS USA. The projections are 40 million metric tons of beef and 100 million metric tons of chicken. 
  • Farm Bill has been signed by Trump
    President Donald J. Trump signed the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 on Dec. 20, 2018.  Secretary of Ag, Sonny Perdue said it was a “Great day for agriculture.”
