January 10, 2019

Lee Schulz, 2019 livestock forecastLee Schulz, associate professor, expects record U.S. production for beef, pork and poultry in his forecast for 2019.


Demand for U.S. poultry and livestock remains strong at the start of 2019, but trade tensions could spark uncertainty for producers in the coming months, said Lee Schulz, associate professor of economics and livestock markets specialist. Consumers should expect grocery prices to stay roughly where they were at the end of 2018, but strong competition and large supplies could lead to good deals for consumers who know how to spot them, Schulz said.
