$20M Wild Hog Program
The Agriculture Department announced a $20 million effort to reduce the increasingly expensive damage caused by wild hogs in rural areas.
Under the new program, USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service will work directly with states to manage populations and test for diseases such as swine fever.
The invasive hogs, otherwise known as feral swine, have expanded from 17 states to 39 states over the last three decades, causing damage ranging from killed livestock to property destruction.
In recent years, costs related to wild hogs have been in the range of $1.5 billion a year.

Cash Cattle:
Cash fed cattle continue to experience limited trading volume. The five-area weighted average steer price for the week ended Friday was $150.02, up $2.23 from the previous Friday, and dressed steers averaged $236.05, down $0.33. In Kansas, cattle sold at $146 live. In Nebraska, live and dressed were reported at $150 and $238, respectively.
Feeder steers were called $1-$4 higher in Oklahoma City on Monday and feeder heifers were $2-$5 higher. Calves in OKC were called firm. Feeder steers were $6-$8 higher while heifers were mostly even in Mississippi markets this week. Cull cows and bulls were steady to $4 higher.

Cattle futures ended the week mildly higher. It was a week of slow and steady progress for the most part.
Corn took a dive on Friday helping end the week on a positive note for live and feeder cattle contracts.
USDA released their monthly supply and demand estimates for many agricultural products on Friday (May 9). The report revealed an estimated 24.563 billion pounds of beef production for 2014, 4.5% lower than 2013.
Corn futures ended the week higher as planting progress remains behind schedule.

Wholesale boxed beef prices moved lower this week. Choice boxes averaged $226.57, down $5.30. Select boxes were $213.40, down $7.15.
