CBOT futures closed mixed with 0-2 cent losses in corn and soybeans and 3-7 cent gains in wheat contracts. Traders are generally waiting on the election results and the updated supply-demand estimates coming Thursday. Wheat was supported by lagging wheat seedings (6 points) and emergence (7 points), as well as a slip in the share of the crop rated “good or excellent”.

Cattle futures closed narrowly mixed, following Monday’s sharp losses. Support came from short-covering and strength in boxed beef. Choice beef ended up .17 at 218.76, while Select beef gained 2.31 to 204.66.

Lean Hog futures closed sharply lower with the nearby December LH down the daily $3.00/cwt limit. The market opened lower and continued dropping throughout the day.  Technically, today’s selloff was signaled by yesterday’s bearish “outside down day” on the charts.  December LH is now $6.00 below the October high.  LH futures were weighed by lower cash hog prices and the pork cutout. FOB Plant Pork ended down .78 at 74.08.
