Cattle Current Podcast—Sept. 1, 2021

Negotiated cash fed cattle trade was at a standstill in all major regions through Tuesday afternoon, according to the Agricultural Marketing Service.

Last week, live prices were at $122-$123/cwt. in the Southern Plains at $123/cwt. Live and dressed sales were at $128 and $202-$208, respectively, in Nebraska and the western Corn Belt.

Cattle futures declined Tuesday with follow-through pressure tied to concerns about recently slower packer production, post Labor Day demand and declining wholesale beef prices. Month-end position squaring was also a factor.

Feeder Cattle futures closed an average of 72¢ lower (7¢ to $1.20), except for 7¢ higher in May.

Live Cattle futures closed an average of 76¢ lower (10¢ to $1.43 lower). 

Through midday today, though, Cattle futures were rebounding some, helped along by further declines in Grain futures.

Choice boxed beef cutout value was 67¢ lower Tuesday afternoon at $342.11/cwt. Select was 52¢ lower at $312.03/cwt.

Corn and Soybean futures closed lower with continued pressure from uncertainty surrounding the impact of Hurricane Ida.

Corn futures closed down mostly 5¢ to 8¢.

Soybean futures closed mostly 4¢ to 10¢ lower through new-crop contracts, and then mostly 2¢ to 3¢ higher.
