CBOT futures closed widely mixed with big trading ranges across the board. On Sunday evening, futures opened sharply lower on rain forecasts, saw some overnight recovery, and then rallied when markets reopened at 8:30 a.m. CT.  Futures closed in the upper trading range but the final results were mixed with old-crop corn and soybeans outperforming new-crop contracts. Tonight’s crop condition ratings are down 2-3 points versus last week, about as expected. Weather forecasts will provide direction tomorrow. Generally, the eastern Corn Belt has rain prospects with cooler temperatures while the western Belt will favor below normal rain and above normal temperatures.

Cattle futures closed mixed with live cattle down slightly and feeder cattle a little higher, despite the stronger corn close. The weaker boxed beef market weighed on LC. Choice beef dropped 2.08 to 321.20 and Select fell 2.15 to 281.46. Negotiated cash trade was inactive.  The monthly Cattle on Feed Report will be released Friday.

Lean hog futures closed sharply lower with the August LH down the daily $3.00 limit (means Tuesday’s limit is $4.50 for all LH contracts). Today’s sell-off is a continuation of the long liquidation seen throughout last week. Pork sales to China have slowed and China reports its herd has grown significantly. FOB Plant Pork closed up only .11 at 120.76, compared to a gain of 6.87 in the morning report. The big difference resulted from evaporation of big gains in the value of bellies and ribs. Loin value slid 5.95 to 115.18. Pork movement was strong. Traders will be anxious to see tomorrow’s Cold Storage report and Thursday’s Quarterly Hogs & Pigs Report.
