How long record cattle prices will last and the rate of cowherd expansion will be two topics addressed by CattleFax Executive Vice President Randy Blach during his market outlook, December 4 at the KLA Convention in Wichita. His presentation will be part of Beef Industry University, sponsored by the Farm Credit Associations of Kansas.

Blach will tie in prospects for competing protein supplies, predictions for feed prices and a forecast for overall meat demand. He also will share thoughts on what factors will shape the U.S. and world economy in 2015 and how the macroeconomy will impact the beef industry.
