Its disappointing in the margins for cattle producers in this country. Its virtually a year round make work project, and I really have a hard time believing straight cattle guys can exist with these tight margins. I've been a mixed guy with what I believe is a solid producing herd, and the margins aren't there to facilitate what needs to be purchased and used to maintain a good herd. I'm willing to give up the loss to gain grain commodity prices, but starting to think I may not need the extra work just to use marginal land. Tough pill to swallow, especially when I look at beef prices in the store, and wonder WITF is taking all the profit. The consumer is getting fleeced also......big profit companies I fear are making a killing.
