Cattle Current Podcast—Aug. 6, 2019

Despite collapsing equities tied to China’s trade retaliation, and despite the steep selloff on Friday, Feeder Cattle futures closed higher Monday, as did Live Cattle, for the most part; Lean Hogs, too.

Support likely stemmed from generally oversold conditions, position squaring from the previous session’s liquidation, as well as funds fleeing equities and parking money on the commodity side of the fence. The latest data for U.S. beef and pork exports is also encouraging.

Except for 42¢ lower in near Oct, Live Cattle futures closed an average of 48¢ higher (12¢ to 67¢ higher).

Feeder Cattle futures closed an average of 86¢ higher (45¢ to $1.22 higher), with the heaviest volume since last September.  

Wholesale beef values were steady on Choice and higher on Select with moderate to fairly good demand and moderate offerings, according to the Agricultural Marketing Service.

Choice boxed beef cutout value was 3¢ lower Monday afternoon at $214.70/cwt. Select was $1.04 higher at $191.67.

Corn futures closed mostly 3¢ to 5¢ higher, extending the previous session’s gains.

Soybean futures closed fractionally mixed.
