USCA Announces Launch of CattleMarketNews.com

(WASHINGTON) The United States Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) is pleased to announce the launch of “CattleMarketNews.com“.  The site provides commentary and feedback on the state of the market from individuals actively engaged in producing, marketing and trading cattle, in addition to USDA price reporting and trade statistics.

“The current volatility of the cattle market has been driven in part by a drastic decline in negotiated fat cattle sales, the rise of the algorithmic trader, and an overall disconnect between the actual fundamentals and trends,” noted USCA President-Elect Kenny Graner.  “Markets operate the best with informed and active participants; Cattle Market News is intended to help drive this action.”

“Currently, a weekly Tip Sheet is compiled and circulated to USCA members.  However, in the initial stages of the site’s rollout, the news and Tip Sheet will be offered at no cost on the Cattle Market News website.  The overall concept of the site will evolve based on industry feedback and input.  Our goal is to help cattle producers out during this difficult and challenging time within the cattle industry,” concluded Graner.
