No one said it had no input. But you implied it was the primary factor in the price drop, which is absolutely incorrect.


And that the primary import threat is Mexico which is also a dubious claim. Bottom line, we all need someone to blame when things go wrong (translation - go our way). Blaming is counterproductive in every facet of life. Don't need a Harvard degree for that. That info comes from the school of hard knocks.


Well I can only go on what I see and the answers to my questions from the butcher's. We ask all time where did the beef come from? From New York to Florida I've got the same answer. The cheapest beef is from Mexico every time.
We refuse to eat foreign beef, seafood and vegetables if at all possible, our life could depend on it.
I'm not blaming anyone for anything, life's good let's keep it that way.

Alright then, why is the beef price dropping when the US is exporting more beef?


I'm seeing price improvements at the sales I track. I'd say prices are normalizing after the anomaly of higher prices on the hoof we saw in 2014-2015. We all knew those prices were unsustainable.

I'd like to see the prices hold about where there at now, it's good for everyone. If fuel and fertilizer stay close to the same price a good cattlemen can make money.
