1 – 2023 confirms a phase change in the cattle price cycle, analyst points out
According to Felipe Fabbri, market and animal production chain analyst at Scot Consultoria, the increase in the slaughter of females released by the IBGE this week confirms, according to him, the change in the phase of the livestock price cycle, since animal prices Replacement animals began to operate at a low rate from the 2nd half of 2021.
“A calf, weaned about 2 years ago, was sold for R$ 3,500, a price explosion in that period, which encouraged the producer to retain females in his squad, and the scenario today is the opposite. This supply of calves is reaching the market and replacement prices have discouraged keeping females in the herd for longer”, he assesses.
