Determinants Of Feeder Cattle Price-Weight Slides


  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.
  • Schroeder, Ted C.


Feeder cattle price-weight slides are analyzed using transactions data on 46,123 pens of feeder cattle over a 10-year period. Fed cattle futures prices and corn prices are important determinants of price-weight slides. Cattle producers can use this information when making sell timing decision, purchase decisions, and managing production.
