Noon Cash Livestock Markets

The direct cash cattle trade typically got off to a quiet start with both buyers and sellers busy taking inventory. Offers and asking prices have not yet appeared. With the holiday shortened week, it is likely that significant trading could develop much earlier than normal. Most of last week’s business took place on Wednesday and Thursday, with a small clean-up shift on Friday. Live deals were mostly $150 to $151, consistently $1 higher than the previous week’s business. Full bids were mostly $242, flat with the previous week’s weighted average in Nebraska.

Boxed beef was mixed at noon to light to moderate demand for light offerings. Choice is down $0.25 at $254.62 and Select is up $1.14 at $233.97. Pick/pick margin is $20.65.

In Missouri last week, feeders were uneven, from $2 lower to $2 higher. The supply of feeders was moderate, but there were a few larger lots. The quality did not match previous weeks.

Medium and Large 1 feeder heifers 501 to 549 pounds made $150 to $197 and feeder heifers 650 to 698 pounds made $141 to $185.

Cash hogs are mixed at lunch with moderate negotiated purchases. The industry has been in a pattern for a few days with lighter business at lower prices and a few days with high volumes and much higher prices. This model may be removed this week due to the Thursday holiday. The industry is monitoring the availability of ready-to-market pigs and the demand situation. There are fears that a global economic slowdown could reduce demand and pressure prices.

Eastern Corn Belt prices were not reported due to confidentiality.
