      complicated and diverse seasonal price patterns (figures 5 through 10). Generally, feeder cattle price exhibit two low periods in the spring and fall with summer and winter price peaks. Fed cattle have seasonal price lows in the summer (figure 11). Regional Differences in Price Seasonality Cow-calf production differs widely in different. A general rule of thumb for feeder space is to provide 18 to 22 inches for calves up to pounds, 22 to 26 inches per head for calves pounds to market weight, 26 to 30 inches per head for mature cows, and 14 to 18 inches per head for calves. If you have feed available at all times, these sizes can be decreased.

      Price fluctuation is part of a normal functioning market and allows supply and demand signals to be passed to producers. However, extreme fluctuations or volatility can have significant negative consequences. At producer level, excessive volatility makes financial planning and investment decisions more difficult. The cobweb model or cobweb theory is an economic model that explains why prices might be subject to periodic fluctuations in certain types of describes cyclical supply and demand in a market where the amount produced must be chosen before prices are observed. Producers' expectations about prices are assumed to be based on observations of previous prices.

These price transmission imperfections affect investments, technology adoption, production level and quality across the chain in developing countries, which negatively impact farmers, input and service providers, traders and other actors of the beef cattle : L. Emilio Morales. Fresh produce prices are subject to seasonal patterns, the result of uneven demand, supply, or movement to market, when either production and/or use is concentrated during particular months. Over the past 30 years, changes in imports, production, storage, and demand have all occurred in fresh produce markets and may have influenced shifts in seasonal price patterns.

Cattle price seasonality is generally most pronounced for lighter weight animals (calves) and generally dampens in magnitude for larger animals (feeder and fed cattle).

Cull cows, however, have the largest seasonal price swings of all cattle classes.

If the expected annual price is multiplied by the index number in a given Table 3. than output prices, when combined with yield variations the cost of production becomes a serious source of risk. Sometimes price movements follow seasonal or cyclical trends that can be predicted.

Many times, however, supply or demand will change unexpectedly and, in turn, affect the market price. When farmers plant. Barriers to the adoption of grid pricing by fed cattle producers are investigated over a week period (January to December ).

The empirical findings document the following potential barriers to adoption: (1) when fed cattle are evaluated on a grid pricing system versus a dressed weight pricing system, a price differential per cwt. and a per-head revenue differential exists Cited by: “Seasonal price patterns are probably one of the strongest influences you see in the cattle business,” Peel explained.
