Marketline Report for Friday, August 16th
SHELLADY ... "Well, good afternoon. I think it's time that we start talking about live cattle. Kind of interesting, even though we've been seeing the Chinese renege and saying they're going to do something and renege. They have still been in the market buying some of our proteins. As we come to the market today, we've got live cattle up about 1% and we've got lean hogs up 1.6%, so even though we've seen this barrage of twitter feeds and the "he said, she said," it's still interesting to see them stepping up to the plate and still continuing to buy live cattle and hogs. So, that's proven to be something that's actually is still happening. Interesting to note. Good fundamental news."
