Cattle Markets, Price Discovery, and Emerging Issues
In June 2021, the USDA Office of the Chief Economist and the Agricultural and Food Policy Center (AFPC) at Texas A&M University jointly sponsored a workshop in Kansas City, Missouri, at which a series of papers summarizing work on fed cattle pricing issues were presented and discussed. These papers, along with a summary of the workshop, were compiled into a book published by AFPC and available on their website at https://www.afpc.tamu.edu/research/publications/710/cattle.pdf. The authors of those papers have produced the following series of factsheets which condense and summarize the main findings of their original work.
