CBOT futures were nearly all higher at the close, recovering from Monday’s weakness. Cattle futures closed higher, adding to Monday’s gains; some contracts pushed above last Thursday’s closes. Lean hog futures closed strongly higher, supported by sharply higher cash hog prices and pork cutouts.

CBOT futures closed very mixed with soybean meal and soybean oil moving in opposite directions in a big way – May soyoil up the daily limit. Cattle futures managed slightly higher closes following last Friday’s Cattle on Feed Report which was considered relatively neutral. Lean hog futures closed mixed, ranging from up 80 in the April to down 112 in June.
