Hoping kill cows stay high all summer. 4th of July isn't that far away,and after last year. I bet most people will be gathering and grilling all summer long.Think of this, if you have been to a stockyard probably 10-15% of the animals sold any week are cull cows and bulls. That amounts to thousands each week. Almost all are slaughtered within a few days and back on the retail market within a week.
An example is Memorial day is 10 days away. Check the market reports and you will see cull cows and bulls are higher already. The reason is they want lots of meat to sell for Memorial day weekend grilling. By next weekend the price may be softer because they don't want extra on hand after the holiday.
