Blach returns to KLA convention

Back by popular demand, CattleFax Chief Executive Officer Randy Blach will highlight Thursday morning’s Beef Industry University at the Kansas Livestock Association Convention, which will be held Nov. 30 through Dec. 2 in Wichita. He will identify factors driving the cattle and beef markets during his presentation, sponsored by the Farm Credit Associations of Kansas.

Blach will assess where the industry stands on cowherd numbers and what that means for beef supplies in 2023. He also will offer cattle price projections, taking into consideration grain prices, energy costs, beef exports, competing meat supplies and consumer demand. He will factor drought conditions, increasing interest rates and high input costs into his comprehensive forecast as well.

Registration and hotel information have been sent to KLA members and can be found online under the Events & Meetings tab at Members can save on the cost of attending the convention by registering before Nov. 11.
