Bath County News-0utlook Your Hometown Newspaper Sept. 15, 2010 11 GENERAL NEWS Kentucky Beef Cattle Marl(et Update Feeder cattle markets held very well through this summer, which has been the trend recently. Several analysts were projecting feeder cattle prices to rally counter- seasonally this fall as feeder cattle supplies were tight and fed cat- tle prices had moved into the mid-upper $90's earlier than ex- pected. However, feed- er markets have gener- ally softened a bit since late August, largely as corn prices have in- creased. This was no- ticed in Kentucky auc- tion prices this week and is even more clear when looking at feeder cattle futures prices. I have talked about fall feeder cattle fu- tures many times since spring. Fall contracts tested the $117 to $118 range in mid-late Au- gust before moving downward. At the time of this writing they had those moved into the $112 to many $113 range. It's virtu- sitting ally impossible to cher- ry pick those times, but prices held at those high levels for more than a week, which gave plen- ty of opportunity. While the futures market was testing strong levels, producers were on cattle + that had already made a sol- id profit. In situations like this, it is usually a good idea to protect a portion of those prof- its. This can be done through futures and options trading, for- ward contracting, or the use of price insur- ance. Is there a chance that prices will move back up? Sure. But there is also a chance that we are heading for a repeat of the last few years where prices spiral downward un- til the end of the year. The name of the game is risk management, so look to take advantage of opportunities when you can.
