Marketline Report for Monday, June 24th
McGATHEY ... "We saw some pressure all the way across the board. Cattle was lower. Concerns of real long-term decline had some of the traders a little bit worried and it seems that the summer just won't show up. Here in Chicago right now, the weather is still relatively cool. We haven't really had that big, robust start to the grilling season, but we have to kind of see because we're leading into the cattle on feed report that's coming today and it looks like the estimates may be pretty much unchanged. If that happens, we can see the market continue to just kind of sag somewhat and, unless we get a whopper of a number, that might get a little bit of a boost. We were really hoping that as we're approaching the Fourth of July we could get a little bit of a shot in the arm and maybe some domestic demand going forward."
