Cattle Current Podcast—Aug. 24, 2021

Negotiated cash fed cattle trade ranged from a standstill to mostly inactive on very light demand through Monday afternoon, according to the Agricultural Marketing Service.

Cash fed cattle prices last week were $1 higher in the Southern Plains at $122/cwt., $1-$2 higher in Nebraska at $125-$127 and $1-$2 higher in the western Corn Belt at $127. Dressed trade was mostly $2 higher in Nebraska at $200; from $1 to $2 higher to $4 lower in the western Corn Belt at $200.

Last week’s five-area direct average steer price was $2.19 higher on a live basis at $125.47/cwt. The average steer price in the beef was 5¢ higher at $200.68.

Lower year-over-year July feedlot placements and fewer cattle on feed year over year — based on the latest Cattle on Feed report — helped boost Cattle futures Monday, amid heavy and active trade.

Choice boxed beef cutout value was $2.97 higher Monday afternoon at $348.03/cwt. Select was 87¢ higher at $319.40.

Corn futures closed mainly narrowly mixed from 1¢ lower to 1¢ higher.

Soybean futures closed 2¢ to 9¢ higher through Sep ’22 and then mostly 11¢ to 14¢ higher.
