Negotiated cash fed cattle trade remained undeveloped through Wednesday afternoon. Although too few to trend, there were a few live trades in the western Corn Belt at $122-$125.

Prices were higher at some fat cattle auctions. For instance, Ch 2-4 steers brought $127.29 to $128.87/cwt. at Tama, IA, which was $2-$3 higher than last week’s negotiated trade in the region. On the other hand, Ch 2-3 steers brought $120.00 to $123.25 at Sioux Falls.

There were 4,139 head offered in the weekly Fed Cattle Exchange Auction. One lot of Texas steers (63 head) sold for 1-9 day delivery at $123/cwt. One lot of Kansas heifers (116 head) were passed out at $123 for 1-9 day delivery.

Feeder Cattle futures led Live Cattle higher Wednesday. Support included firmer outside markets and resurgent wholesale beef values.

Feeder Cattle futures closed an average of $1.60 higher ($1.37 to $2.15 higher).

Corn futures closed mostly fractionally higher to 1¢ higher.
