CBOT futures closed mostly higher as many corn, bean and wheat contracts traded new highs. Market support continues to come from export sales optimism and unfavorable moisture in South America and key wheat areas. Russia plans to set export quotas for Jan-June 2021.

Cattle futures closed higher with live cattle supported by higher cash prices and firm boxed beef. Choice beef edge up .64 to 216.88 and Select beef dropped 1.26 to 205.58. Cash trade has been light with dressed sales at $169/cwt, up $1.00 from last week. A few cattle sold at $108.50/cwt on the online Fed Cattle Exchange.

Lean hog futures closed higher, supported by higher pork cutouts and LH futures discount to the cash market. FOB Plant Pork ended up 2.63 at 95.18 on an 11.75 gain in the ham value to 79.09. Ham value is very volatile from day to day.
