Kansas Beef Plant Fire Could Weigh on Cattle Market Near-Term

A large fire occurred Friday at the Tyson Foods beef plant in Holcomb, Kansas, forcing the evacuation of all workers and closure of the facility for an undetermined period.

The market could react bearishly to the news since fed cattle supplies will have to be absorbed by fewer plants operating for an as yet undetermined time. However, less beef output could also push up wholesale prices for beef.
