Cattle Futures Close Mixed

The Tuesday cattle complex ended mixed with gains for finished cattle and weakness for feeders. Live cattle futures were 15 to 65 cents in the black at the close. Reflecting the increased corn price, feeder cattle futures closed with $1.70 to $2.37 losses. Jan feeders closed 90 cents lower to $136.65. The CME Feeder Cattle Index was up another 48 cents on 1/25 to $134.96. Cash trade has yet to establish for the week. The Central Stockyards hosted FCE auction has 1,570 head of Southern cattle listed so far for tomorrow’s auction. Wholesale Boxed Beef prices were higher again on Tuesday afternoon, widening the Chc/Sel spread to $11.73. Choice was up $2.33 and Select was $1.12 higher. USDA’s estimate for Tuesday’s FI cattle slaughter is 117,000 head. After revising Monday 3,000 head lighter, WTD slaughter is estimated at 232k head. That is still up 3k on the week, but below the 240,000 head from the same week last year.
