Cattle Current Podcast-Dec. 13, 2018

Negotiated cash fed cattle trade was undeveloped through Wednesday afternoon.

There were only 156 head (two lots) offered in the weekly Fed Cattle Exchange auction. One lot (97 heifers) sold for delivery at 1-9 days for an average of $119/cwt.

Cattle futures continued to build on recent gains Wednesday, buoyed by last week’s large fed cattle harvest, as a barometer of domestic demand strength, in tandem with stronger cash prices.

Live Cattle futures closed an average of 39¢ higher.

Feeder Cattle futures closed an average of 34¢ higher.

Corn futures closed mostly unchanged to fractionally mixed.

Wholesale beef values were sharply lower on Choice and steady on Select with light to moderate demand and moderate to heavy offerings, according to the Agricultural Marketing Service.

Choice boxed beef cutout value was $2.21 lower Wednesday afternoon at $212.25/cwt. Select was 18¢ higher at $201.57.
