  • Province’s cattle prices the highest in a decade | National Farmers Union in New Brunswick
    a fair price it s good says Chiasson It s a good thing for farmers a good thing for everybody even though consumers don t see higher prices as a good thing The union says prices plummeted in the aftermath of a case of BSE or mad cow disease being detected in Alberta in 2003 Over the last 11 years prices have climbed steadily to a level where farmers are able to recover the cost of production Prices are up 85 per cent over the last year which is significant says Chiasson More than 50 per cent of NFU NB members keep cattle and the rise in prices means a stable financial year for many of them The high prices will particularly benefit farmers with a cow calf operation meaning they sell the young cattle at a weight of 500 to 600 pounds Trends are expected to keep up for at least the next few years due to market demand Chiasson says there is clearly a shortage of animals driving up the price and the demand is there for the product Even with positive projections for stable prices the NFU NB encourages all farmers to do their research and make an informed decision regarding the market outlook of cattle prices before committing to any major long term investments in cattle The union president says local farmers are up against tough international competition which benefits from cheaper labour more lenient environmental regulations and other benefits So if New Brunswick farmers can get a little more for their cattle that helps them stay viable We compete against these people but the rules are not the same he says A report from BMO Economics in August said the price of red meat at the grocery store has risen because of increasing cattle prices
