Purchase prices of cattle recorded the first drops in a long time

Cattle prices have been steadily increasing in recent months. Recently, however, this trend has slowed down somewhat, and some companies have even adjusted rates.

The price fever on the cattle market was somewhat chilled by timid attempts to lower rates by some plants, which was reflected especially in the case of prices in the WBC settlement. However, the rates still remain fairly high, thus making it possible to cope with rising production costs.
