14 Why we have livestock cycles Because Biology of animals: change takes time

15 Cattle Biological lags 9 months from breeding to calving months from birth to slaughter Hogs 4 months from breeding to farrowing 6 months from birth to slaughter Chickens 3 weeks from breeding to hatching 6-8 weeks to slaughter

16 Why we have livestock cycles Because Biology of animals: change takes time Farmers get old Young farmers wanting to expand Older farmers wanting to cut back Bankers want loans to be repaid Loan to borrowers with equity

17 Livestock cycle High prices for a while Leads to surplus cash Leads to credit worthiness Leads to increased breeding Leads to increased production Leads to low prices for a while Leads to no cash Leads to reduced breeding Leads to decreased production Leads to high price

18 Livestock Cycles High Prices Expanded Production Reduced Production Low Prices
