On Wednesday, the market for cash cattle is likely to be more interested, and fattening plots hope to raise prices.


On Tuesday, prices at the livestock complex rose again because, technically speaking, the contracts receive huge support. The cash hog market jumped nearly $ 3.00 higher and traded a staggering amount of pigs. Now the cash market just needs to follow this trend for a week.

Pig prices closed higher according to the National Direct Afternoon Pig Report, up $ 2.90 from a weighted average of $ 89.41 per 13,406 head.

March corn fell 17 3/4 cents a bushel, and March soybean meal fell $ 9.60. The Dow Jones industrial index rose 422.67 points and the NASDAQ rose 348.84 points. Prices continue to be higher – AgFax
