Last Trades:

LEQ8:  1.05 at 104.425, trading in a range of 2.275

GFK8: 1.60 at 138.75, trading in a range of 3.05

GFQ8: 1.30 at 144.00, trading in a range of 3.275

 

Cattle Commentary:  Cattle futures started the session under pressure, posting their lows for the day within the first minute of trade.  The market managed to grind higher through the remainder of the session, finishing the day near the top end of the range.  Not only did cattle finish towards the top end of the day’s range, but they marked their highest price since March 23rd.  There has been not much new news on the cash side which may have helped spur the buying interest.  The lack of cash this week lends hand to the idea that we will be higher tomorrow; ultimately, we are looking for things to be fairly steady.   Boxed beef was moderately higher today.
