2022 October placements of cattle into feedlots fell 6% from 2021

Placements of cattle into feedlots fell 6 percent this October compared to the same time last year.
The 2.11 million head was the lowest ever for the month, mainly due to relatively high feed costs and tighter supplies.

University of Missouri Extension Professor, Dr. Scott Brown spoke with RFD-TV’s own Janet Adkison on current numbers, what is contributing to the situation, the hay supply, and what to expect in 2023.
