CBOT futures closed sharply higher and near the day’s highs. The July contracts expired today. Futures found support from a hotter, drier extended forecast. With today’s rally, soybean and Chicago wheat futures closed the down gaps from July 6, but corn and soybean meal did not. December Corn has retraced around 50% of the dollar-plus drop off the July 1st high.

Cattle futures closed lower and near the day’s lows. Losses were amplified in the feeder futures due to the big rally in corn prices. Light cash trade and weaker live and beef values weighed on the market. Choice beef dropped .46 to 272.88 and Select fell 2.99 to 253.75. Light cash trade in Nebraska was reported at $123/cwt, down $2 from Monday.

Lean hog futures closed lower after opening higher this morning. LH are pausing after a strong 3-day rally. FOB Plant Pork ended down .12 at 118.69. Lower values for the loin, butt, and rib were offset by gains in the value of ham and picnics. Weekly pork export sales will be reported in the morning.
