Input costs eat into cattle margins

High input costs continue to eat into cattle margins.

Iowa State University Extension beef specialist Beth Doran says the price of feed has come down, but producers are still dealing with other high input costs.

“We know inflation is out there, we know interest rates as we look at interest rates, they have been increasing on everything.”

She tells Brownfield new implant regulations could also prove costly.

“In terms of what implants you can use and when you can use them.”

Doran says recent market weakness has also squeezed break-evens for cattle producers.
