Marketline Report for Thursday, June 6th
McGATHEY ... "Cattle really firmed up. There's been an uptick in the cash trade and that lifted futures somewhat. You know, the market had been oversold and we were looking for a little bit of a bounce. It finally made a little bit of a turn. I mean, we don't see this big trajectory on the upside, but even though beef prices were eroding a little bit, it seems that the market has kind of made somewhat of a turn. So, we're looking for some follow through support coming in. The feeders were higher as well. That follow through buying did give that a boost. Perhaps they're having some bovine issues in Brazil. We've been watching China all this time with the hog issue, but Brazil's having a little bit of a problem and it could very well open the doors for some U.S. exports. That could give the market a little bit of a lift."
