Cattle Current Podcast—Aug. 31, 2021

Negotiated cash fed cattle trade was at a standstill in all major regions through Monday afternoon, according to the Agricultural Marketing Service.

Last week, live prices were at $122-$123/cwt. in the Southern Plains at $123/cwt. Live and dressed sales were at $128 and $202-$208, respectively, in Nebraska and the western Corn Belt.

Lower Corn futures helped boost Feeder Cattle futures Monday. They closed an average of 62¢ higher (10¢ to $1.75), except for spot Sep, down 60¢.

Recent sluggishness in the pace of packer buying continued to pressure Live Cattle futures again Monday. They closed an average of 57¢ lower (18¢ to $1.75). 

Choice boxed beef cutout value was $2.56 lower Monday afternoon at $342.78/cwt. Select was $2.97 lower at $312.55/cwt.

Front-month Corn and Soybean futures fell hard with barge delivery uncertainty stemming from Hurricane Ida.

Corn futures closed 6¢ to 17¢ lower through new-crop contracts and then mostly 3¢ lower.

Soybean futures closed 11¢ to 54¢ lower in the front seven contracts and then mostly 4¢ to 7¢ lower.
