Was largely on retaining and buying replacements.
Average cost to raise a heifer was 1900 the most to pay for a replacement
was 2400 with the five year forecast.
Forecast was the market steady this year then declining till 2021.
Still think the decline will be till 2021? Or do you believe it will continue to decline

I wish I had read this thread before taking over for my dad with full commitment. With that said, I am impressed with your insight Caustic Bruno! I guess I am in for the long haul now!

It might be longer if the monopoly on the packers is not broken.
Brazil is in the drivers seat right now.
The biggest issue is we are not on Americans radar. Americans don’t care where their food comes from as long as it’s cheap.
The concerning part to me is if enough of the 50 and under crowd get out so goes the sale barn.
Money doesn’t buy happiness, but the lack does buy misery.
