Cattle Current Podcast—Mar. 17, 2020

Markets remain firmly entrenched in the COVID-19 panic that is forcing widespread disruptions to how people go about their business, while slowing economic wheels.

Live Cattle futures showed signs of life Monday, with surging wholesale beef values, but sank hard again, as did Feeder Cattle.

Live Cattle futures closed an average of $3.73 lower.

Feeder Cattle futures closed an average of $4.47 lower, limit-down in all but one contract.

Wholesale beef values rocketed higher Monday, with heavy offerings, as retailers replenished supplies windrowed by consumers stocking up.  There was also likely some defensive buying against potential challenges in the supply chain.

Choice boxed beef cutout value was $16.22 higher Monday afternoon at $224.36/cwt. Select was $14.73 higher at $216.71.

Corn futures closed 11¢ and 10¢ lower in the front two contracts and then mostly 4¢ to 6¢ lower.

Soybean futures closed 18¢ to 27¢ lower through Jly ’21 and then mostly 14¢ to 16¢ lower.
