Cattle Current Podcast-Dec. 21, 2018

Cash fed cattle trade started Thursday at $190/cwt. in Nebraska, which was $2 more than last week. Though too few to trend, there were also some early live sales in the western Corn Belt at $120 and early dressed sales at $190, both $3 more than last week.

Cattle futures closed mostly higher ahead of the monthly Cattle on Feed report (see below), which will likely be viewed as neutral to a touch bearish.

Except for 50¢ higher in spot Dec and 17¢-27¢ lower at the back, Live Cattle futures closed 10¢ to 30¢ higher.

Other than 30¢ higher in the back two contracts, Feeder Cattle futures closed an average of $1.02 higher.

Corn futures closed mostly 5¢ to 6¢ lower through Jul ’20 and then fractionally lower to 2¢ lower.

Soybean futures closed 4¢ to 6¢ lower.

Wholesale beef values were firm to higher on good demand and light offerings, according to the Agricultural Marketing Service.

Choice boxed beef cutout value was 77¢ higher Thursday afternoon at $212.47/cwt. Select was 41¢ higher at $205.26.
