The worst U.S. drought in half a century and record feed prices are spurring farmers to shrink cattle herds to the smallest in two generations, driving beef prices higher. Beef output will slump to a nine-year low in 2013 after drought damaged pastures from Missouri to Montana, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates. The domestic herd is now the smallest since at least 1973, and retail prices reached a record last month, USDA data show. And one analyst estimates cattle futures may rise 8.1% to an all-time high of $1.35 a pound in the next 12 months.
