CBOT futures closed mixed with corn and soybeans continuing to be pressured by fund selling and a lack of export demand. Live cattle closed slightly higher through June 2020 and feeder cattle ended unchanged to slightly lower.  Lean hog futures closed sharply lower due to Tuesday’s sharp drop in the pork cutout, huge production, lack of technical chart support and reports that the US/China Phase 1 deal won’t happen in 2019.
