With cattle supplies declining sharply over the next 2-3 years following this year's drought-led beef herd liquidation and continued reluctance by hog producers to expand herds, fears over meeting consumer demand have become a concern. John Nalivka of Sterling Marketing will use his 30-plus years of experience to provide pointed economic analysis and forecasts for the meat and livestock industries and study the effects of changes in industry structure, supply chain issues, and more during NAMI's December 13 webinar: 2023 Economic Outlook for the Meat and Poultry Industry. Make plans to join us and discover how these micro and macroeconomic events are affecting businesses.
