Cattle Current Podcast-Oct. 25, 2018

Although cash fed cattle trade remained undeveloped through Wednesday afternoon on light to moderate demand, there were some early live sales in the western Corn Belt on Tuesday at $112/cwt., which was $2 more than last week.

There were only 1,051 head offered in the weekly Fed Cattle Exchange Auction, and no takers. There were two lots passed out at $105.

Stronger wholesale beef prices, notions of steady-to-higher fed cattle prices, as well as a surge in Lean Hog futures, helped Cattle futures firm Wednesday.

Live Cattle futures closed an average of 71¢ higher (50¢ to $1.20 higher).

Except for 45¢ lower in spot Oct, Feeder Cattle futures closed an average of 48¢ higher.

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

Choice boxed beef cutout value was $1.11 higher Wednesday afternoon at $211.39/cwt. Select was 96¢ higher at $197.82.
