CBOT futures closed slightly higher on news that Democrat leaders have agreed to vote on the USMCA, a “neutral” WASDE report from USDA, that President Trump may wait on the December 15 tariff increases, and signs that US and China are getting nearer to a Phase 1 trade deal.

Cattle futures closed narrowly mixed on a lack of significant market news. Early cash trade is similar to last week’s price. Boxed beef weakened. Choice beef dropped 2.15 to 221.49 and Select lost 1.14 to 205.35.  Choice-Select spread is 16.14.

Lean hog futures closed higher with deferred contracts the strongest. LH was supported by the USMCA deal in Congress, higher pork values and signs that US and China are getting closer to a Phase 1 deal. FOB Plant Pork gained 1.14 to 83.12.
