Markets Continue To Adjust After Tyson Fire


Cattle market margins continue to adjust following the fire at a Tyson processing plant in Holcomb, Kansas.

That facility slaughters around 5 percent of U.S. Capacity. According to Cattle Fax Market Analyst, Kevin Good, packing plants in surrounding states are increasing rates and adding more weekend shifts to make up for lost production.

Tyson plans to rebuild the plant. Crews started cleanup days after the fire, but no time line to reopen has been released.
