i just loaded out a trailer headed for the stock yard today. the booker at the stock yard says that in about 40 days the beef prices (on hoof) are really supposed to shoot up.
my numbers have been down the last few years due to the cost of calves ( we buy light calves and feed them up to about 1200 lbs) the cost of the feed, as well as the effects of a drought that have left our pastures and hay supplies pretty short.
IMO this high priced beef is only going to push up the cheaper protein markets as people look for cheaper cuts of meat to feed their inner carnivore cravings.
its going to get much worse before it gets better as well.
