The article reports on the increase in beef cattle prices in the U.S. from February 28 to March 4, 2011. Glynn Tonsor, an agricultural economist at the Kansas State University (K-State), said that the increase was driven by tight supplies and strong demand. At the K-State's Cattlemen's Day in Manhattan, New York City, Tonsor stated that fed cattle prices will increase throughout the year, but profits will not necessarily rise or set historic records due to higher corn and feeder cattle prices.
