The Beef by The Beef & Cassandra Fish - 4d ago
By Cassie Fish, http://cassandrafish.com Yesterday’s USDA Comprehensive Boxed Beef report was much more positive than a typical July. Usually the dog days of summer mean slow bookings, but spot, out front sales and formula volume were all excellent. Also, the comprehensive value didn’t drop as much as the decline in choice and select prices indicated, so packer margins did not ...

By Cassie Fish, http://cassandrafish.com Some negotiated cash cattle trade got underway in the south this morning at steady money, $109. Around 11k head have traded while the north seems content to wait until Friday, though Iowa has tripped a few at $180 dressed. Packers need inventory, at least 3 packers participated in the south and that is certainly true north. ...

By Cassie Fish, http://cassandrafish.com CME cattle futures, along with hogs and grains have been all over the place today. Breaks, followed by rallies, then breaks, then rallies, it is enough to make the most experienced trader dizzy. The much-anticipated USDA crop reports came out at 11 a.m. today and it’s obvious without looking at the numbers, that USDA raised corn ...

By Cassie Fish, http://cassandrafish.com Packers are bidding lower this Tuesday, working harder at getting someone in Kansas or Texas to sell cheaper. Bids are $106 and $107, steady with prices a year ago, $3 to $4 lower than last week. Most likely packers expect to whittle another $2 off cash from last week, not $3 to $4. Feedlot marketings are ...

By Cassie Fish, http://cassandrafish.com A lousy Friday’s close in CME cattle futures followed by a Monday morning rally for the third week in a row- it’s getting to be a pattern.

By Cassie Fish, http://cassandrafish.com Shaking off another miserable Friday close, CME cattle futures have another Monday rally underway. Technically the market looks revived and additional upside is possible, regardless of the negative attitudes so predominate as of late. The rally isn’t confined to just live cattle, but feeders and lean hogs are joining in too. A look at the CFTC ...

Carcass weight data, that came out last Thursday was bullish and followed today by bullish grading data released today that saw Kansas join Texas with less cattle grading choice than a year ago.
