Live cattle futures were $1.35 to $2.55 lower yesterday with Oct and Dec limit down, after Friday’s bearish COF and Cattle inventory reports. Feeder cattle futures finished with Aug down the limit and back months $3.375 to $4.475 lower. The CME feeder cattle index was up $2.85 on July 21 to $151.03. Wholesale beef prices were higher in the afternoon report, with choice boxes up 55 cents at $207.46 and select $3.09 higher at $197.89. The Ch/Se spread has narrowed to $9.57. Estimated FI cattle slaughter was 112,000 head, 2,000 larger that last week and the same week last year. Some of the large placements numbers from Friday’s COF report could be attributed to the drought in the North. SD placements were up 67% yr/yr, with placements of all cattle under 800 lbs 26.55% larger than in June 2016. Monday’s Cold Storage report showed June 30 beef stocks 10.3% lower than in 2016 but 1.236% larger than May at 416.68 million pounds.
