Choice boxes were down 83 cents at $204.86, with Select boxes 71 cents lower at $200.16. Estimated week to date FI cattle slaughter is at 615,000 head including Saturday. That is 4,000 head more than last week. Late cash trade on Friday was in the $122-123.50 range. USDA reported weekly beef export shipments of 15,072 MT on Friday, nearly 5.06% above the same week in 2017. Managed money spec traders were at their lowest reported CFTC bullish position since Nov 2016 on Tuesday. They lowered that net long position by 6,995 contracts to 70,973 contracts.

That report will not be issued if the government is still shut down.
