It’s been a wild year for beef markets, whether you’re a cow-calf operator, a feedlot, or a packer. As the industry continues to work through the effects of a global pandemic, calls for restructuring have grown, and then a data breach at JBS has sent the sector reeling. 

Today we’ll catch up with DTN Livestock Analyst Shayle Stewart, to learn more about
the latest news and put all of these issues in a wider context. We’ll talk about consumer demand, USDA’s confusing reports, and how drought conditions in the West may contribute to further herd liquidation. Plus we’ll hear what impact rising grain prices might continue to have on the industry, and how to think about opportunity in this uncertain market.
