Live cattle and feeder futures again diverged, with live cattle losing ground but most feeder contracts settled higher. The CME feeder cattle index is up 73 cents at $217.63. This morning, USDA reported net weekly beef export sales were 13,100 MT for the week ending March 19, which was up 13% from the previous week, and 2% higher than the four week average. Choice beef prices were up 16 cents and Select was down 18 cents today, at $250.67 and $246.96 respectively. Week to date Slaughter is only 419,000 versus 430,000 last week and 470,000 a year ago. Feedlots, encouraged by higher prices last week, are asking $166 or more for live sales this week and $266 or higher for carcass based. Packers have reportedly not been eager bidders. A few bids were seen at $160 in the South and $258 in the North.
