Cattle Commentary:  Cattle future opened lower which wasn’t much of a surprise, considering we saw global equities down over 2% in the overnight and early morning session.  This spike in fear often carries over into the cattle complex as money flow shifts and concerns over future demand grow.  Stocks were able to claw back losses to finish the day closer to unchanged.  Cash trade has been steady over the last month, the bulk of it coming in from 110.50-111.00.  There are some suggesting that we could see a $2-$3 jump this week, we are keeping our expectations tempered a little more.  Tomorrow’s Fed Cattle Exchange has 1,051 head offered, this could put the line in the sand for this week’s trade.
