I attended this session at the TAMU Beef Short Course. The speaker owns one of the larger sale barns in Texas.

Good common sense article.

The killer
Global markets
The price of calves at the sale barn is constantly changing. A lot of different factors impact the sale price, and staying aware of those factors, whether they directly affect you or not, helps you keep tabs on the current cattle market. “We are in a total global market these days.” Keep up with the market via the reports that are easily accessible online from most livestock auctions or ag publications.
