Unfortunately, I think we’re in for some rough times ahead. I think livestock markets, in particular, will continue to get hit hard. Here’s an article that I appreciated.

“Most market observers agree that once the panic selling subsides there will be a tremendous relief rally in all the commodity markets, in large part due to pent up demand. However, the markets have to bottom first, and the COVID-19 cases will need to start to slow down in the U.S. and globally before that will happen.”
