BRAKKE CONSULTING: IT'S A GREAT TIME TO BE IN THE LIVESTOCK BUSINESS
Brakke Consulting reports:

This is a great time to be in the livestock business - if you have livestock and can keep them healthy.

Prices for beef, pork and milk are at or near all-time highs. Export markets are strong.

Animal numbers are down for beef and hogs, and headed lower. The drought forced many producers in the Southwest and West to liquidate herds. PEDV - Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus - is raging through the North American swine herd. (No doubt many companies are racing to develop a vaccine.)

The good news for animal health companies is that producers are flush with cash. The bad news is that there are a lot fewer animals to be treated.
