Ethanol, cattle prices linked by corn
As the price of corn rises - largely due to increased ethanol production - the price of feeder cattle falls, said Ron Torell, Cooperative Extension livestock specialist.
Cattlemen who want to learn how to combat this problem should attend the annual Cattlemen's Update program Jan. 7-11 in various Nevada communities and by video conference.
What really blows my mind is the article is aimed at cattlemen. If cattlemen don't know that higher corn prices lead to lower calf prices, they have a bigger problems. Like a non functioning brain. Don't get me wrong, we as cow-calf producers need to figure out how to weather this storm but by putting it the way they did makes us look like idiots.
It pisses me off, people are idiots, but what are you going to do? The world is full of idiots. That's why we'll never have flying cars. People don't know how to drive. Dustin Diamond
