Cattle Current Podcast—May 2, 2019

Through Wednesday afternoon, negotiated cash fed cattle prices were mostly $1-$4 lower than last week on a live basis at: $124/cwt. in Nebraska; $122 in Kansas; $125-$126 in the western Corn Belt. Dressed trade was $4-$6 lower at mostly $200.

There were 837 head offered in the weekly Fed Cattle Exchange auction; 479 head (four lots) sold for a weighted average price of $122.15/cwt., for delivery at 1-9 days.

A rally in Lean Hog futures helped stem the degree of bleeding in Cattle futures Wednesday.

Except for $1.82 higher in the back contract, Live Cattle futures closed an average of 42¢ lower.

Except for 7¢ higher in Aug, Feeder Cattle futures closed an average of 37¢ lower.

Wholesale beef values were weak to lower on light demand and moderate offerings, according to the Agricultural Marketing Service.

Choice boxed beef cutout value was $1.62 lower Wednesday afternoon at $230.22/cwt. Select was 71¢ lower at $217.50.

Corn futures closed 3¢-6¢ higher through May ’20 and then mostly 2¢ higher. Presumably, some of the bounce came from weather-delayed planting.

Soybean futures closed 1¢-3¢ lower, extending losses as traders look for wet conditions to ultimately bring in more corn acres.
