Higher Prices For Feeder Cattle
MORNING LIVESTOCK OUTLOOK
Higher prices for feeder cattle and the availability of feeder cattle may play right into what the packer wants, heavier cattle. Interest rates increasing along with fewer feeder cattle are going to add to costs of feedlots. It is likely feedlots will keep feeders on feed longer versus moving as soon as they are ready especially in the Midwest.
Packers are buying as many hogs as possible that are market ready. Weights on formula and carcass purchased hogs have been coming down and feedlots that sell on the open market are moving hogs as soon as they are ready capturing the better prices as they move up.
