Packer’s Need for Cattle Pushed Cash Market Higher

What began as a dismal start in the cash trade early last week, shifted into a more positive direction on Friday.

What began as a dismal start in the cash trade early last week, with a large volume of cattle trading at $117 to $118 cwt, shifted into a more positive direction on Friday.  

With packers still needing to fill some holes for this week, cattle still available commanded $119 to $120 cwt in the South, and $121 to $122 cwt or $190 dressed in the North.

The lingering effects of the recent storm through Colorado, Nebraska and Iowa are yet to be determined on the available cattle supply. 

However, from every indication the packer continues to chew up available inventory which should continue to be a plus for the feeder.  Cattle feeders are starting to find themselves in a position to have more leverage in the market, without fear of getting cattle backed up. 

After the higher trade at the end of last week, many feeders feel that the market may have turned in their favor.  The opportunity could be short-term, but as the storms in the north push cattle farther back, the south’s numbers continue to dwindle.

MY NAME IS Dickson Walter,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and DR AKHERE assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly CONTACT this wonderful man Dr AKHERE,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back.
