Except for MGE spring wheat futures, the grain and soy complex posted higher closes with corn and oats leading the way. With the energy and equity markets stabilized, traders focused again on the unfavorable weather outlook in the critical crop region. Interestingly, corn, wheat and soy complex futures stayed above Monday’s closing prices. The difference was that corn ended upper range, soy mid-range and wheat near the day’s lows.

Cattle futures closed lower on pressure from weaker boxed beef values and rising corn futures. Choice beef lost 1.61 to 264.88 and Select slid .91 to 248.58. Beef movement was fairly strong at 152 loads.

Lean hog futures closed higher even as the pork cutout weakened. The August LH’s discount to the current CME Lean Hog Index offered support. FOB Plant Pork dropped 1.51 to 120.34 with pork movement a very heavy 340 loads. Ham value was down 4% and the butt was down 6%.
