Anne Dunford's presentation will cover Canadian and US cattle numbers, the resulting supply and how the US drought is impacting both.  The drought’s impact on feed grains and the resulting cost of gain and break-evens will also be delved into.  Beyond supply impacts, the presentation will also discuss demand impacts for beef, both domestically and globally.  Increased price volatility on all commodities means more risk for producers today.  What can producers do to manage this risk?  What are the global influences on the Canadian beef business – from direct trade impacts to global beef demand.
