We had another stellar day in the grain and soy markets as new contract highs were made in corn, Chicago wheat, soybeans, meal and soyoil.  Except for the expiring December LC contract, cattle futures closed lower with bigger losses in feeder cattle due to the soaring corn price. Lean hog futures closed very narrowly mixed after a very strong opening to the market.

After trading slightly lower overnight, corn and soy complex futures rallied steadily during the day session to close sharply higher, especially in the old-crop soybeans and meal. Both live and feeder cattle futures closed in the red today with bigger losses in the nearby contracts. Lean hog futures closed slightly higher, erasing some of Monday’s losses.
