Weekly Recap 

September 27, 2013

The fed cattle market was not established as went to press, but held a higher undertone. Boxed beef traded sideways to firm for the week. Supplies were manageable but demand was slow to improve as we move into fall.
Feeder cattle values were steady to $3.00 higher on the week while calves were mostly steady to as much as $5.00 lower. Demand continues to be good for all weight of cattle, but best on weaned calves are true yearlings. Supplies of calves are increasing but remain below year ago levels. Slaughter cows were $1.00 to $3.00 lower. Supplies of cows are slowly increasing as weaning picks up.
Corn prices increased modestly for the week, it appears that the harvest will be at record levels this year.
