Corbitt Wall, livestock market analyst for DV Auction, will be the keynote speaker on Dec. 1 at the 24th annual Missouri Livestock Symposium, says Garry L. Mathes, committee chairman.

The Missouri Livestock Symposium is the premier educational event and trade show for livestock producers and is held Dec. 1 and 2 at the William Matthew Middle School in Kirksville, Missouri.

Zac Erwin, University of Missouri Extension field specialist in livestock and symposium vice-chair, says, “We are excited to bring Corbitt Wall back to the Missouri Livestock Symposium.” Erwin adds, “Corbitt is arguably one of the most prominent voices in the cattle marketing business and has developed a significant following of beef producers throughout the Midwest. Most producers appreciate his straightforward communication style and fundamental understanding of the cattle market from farm to futures.”    

Corbitt Wall is currently the commercial cattle manager and livestock market analyst for DV Auction. Corbitt has earned a reputation for his keen understanding of the ever-evolving dynamics of livestock marketing. Wall has engaged in many outlets to broadcast his knowledge of the industry and can be found 5 days a week on The Feeder Flash.

Erwin adds that the Missouri Livestock Symposium focuses on finding the leading experts in their respective fields to help educate farmers, ranchers, and the public on issues that affect all livestock production, and we are excited to bring Corbitt Wall to Kirksville in December.
