Store and Breeding Cattle

For the time of  year and a harvest market - another incredible entry of livestock. Store cattle trade is again very strong, despite the rise in input costs and the beef trade is now wobbling slightly. However, everyone has to eat and with potential economic woes on the horizon, maybe agriculture is a good place to invest.
