Corn and soybean futures closed lower, although well off the day’s lows, as traders were disappointed there wasn’t follow-through buying to Friday’s higher closes. Buyers are reluctant given the start of corn harvest and continued problems with export loadouts following hurricane damage.

Cattle futures closed lower, pressured by weaker boxed beef values and a weekend fire at the JBS plant in Grand Island, NE. This plant has a 6,000 head/day capacity. Choice beef lost 1.29 to 325.93 and Select fell 1.21 to 292.16. Cattle futures have slid $10-12/cwt the past three weeks. October LC has come down to meet the cash fed market.

Lean hog futures also closed sharply lower and are down around $9/cwt in the past week. LH was pressured by falling cash hog and wholesale pork prices. The CME LH Index is at a huge premium to the October LH price. FOB Plant Pork dropped 3.98 to 101.12 with every primal losing value. The ham dropped 8.83 to 67.73. The cutout value is down to values last seen in March.
