Live cattle futures settled mixed Friday as nearby contracts were lower and back months higher. Aug lost 3.05% on the week, as cash trade was weaker. Feeder cattle futures were mixed as well with Aug up 2.5 cents and other front months lower. The CME feeder cattle index was 36 cents higher than the previous day at $144.80 for August 17. Wholesale beef prices were lower again in the Friday afternoon report, with choice down $1.34 at $194.29 and select boxes $1.70 lower at $192.50. The CH/SE spread is now at $1.70. Cash sales of $110-$110.50 were reported across most regions yesterday, down $5 from last week. Weekly FI cattle slaughter is estimated at 634,000 head, 7,000 fewer than last week but 32,000 larger than the same week last year. Thursday’s export sales report showed Japan, again the lead buyer at 3,000 MT, as their tariff on frozen beef was increased to 50% on Aug 1. We are assuming that these latest purchases are either fresh beef (not affected by the tariff increase) or to price elastic markets. Aug 17 Cattle closed at $106.375, down $0.750, Oct 17 Cattle closed at $105.900, down $0.325, Dec 17 Cattle closed at $107.850, down $0.425, Aug 17 Feeder Cattle closed at $140.500, up $0.025 Sep 17 Feeder Cattle closed at $140.025, down $0.700 Oct 17 Feeder Cattle closed at $139.925, down $0.550
