Beef producers tackle tight feed supplies

Many cattlemen are concerned about the price and availability of feed in 2023.

Northwest Iowa beef producer Craig Moss says corn supplies have been tight. “With the ethanol biproduct market, availability was kind of tough,” he said. “We found ourselves buying larger quantities when available, just to have and to secure price.”

He tells Brownfield price risk is one of his biggest concerns in 2023, but… “We’re probably more concerned about basis risk,” Moss said.
