CattleFax offers free webinar discussing trade tensions on Sept. 12

Escalating trade tensions with China, renegotiating NAFTA, and continued expansion across all three U.S. protein sectors add to market uncertainty and shape market expectations for the future. Cattle producers are looking for answers on where the markets go from here.

The CattleFax Trends+ Cow-Calf Webinar at 5:30 p.m. MT, Sept. 12, 2018, will address these topics. Producers and industry leaders can visit!/about to access program details and register for the webinar.

Trade uncertainty and the threat of smaller profit margins have loomed large for cow-calf producers in 2018. Well informed producers can make decisions on production, marketing and risk management that can protect the bottom line as expansion leads to tighter margins across the cattle producing segments.

CattleFax analysts will discuss a variety of topics in the one-hour session, including:

Current trade disruptions and market implications;

Calf and feeder markets for the remainder of 2018;

Cattle and feedstuff market prices for the next 12 to 18 months; and

A five-year vision of the cow-calf sector.

The Trends+ webinar series informs cattle producers about current market conditions and provides providing decision-friendly advice regarding management decisions. The analysis and strategies shared through the webinar series has reached more than 5,000 producers, and sponsorship from Elanco Animal Health is making the seminar free for all attendees.
