Cattle markets saw stronger prices and firm demand in a holiday-shortened week. Packers turned aggressive late Wednesday driving cash fed cattle prices $2 per hundredweight higher at $127 to $128. Cattle sold on a dressed basis at $4 to $5 higher at $201 per hundredweight. Packer demand was called “very good.”


Analysts expect cattle owners to begin the week asking $130.


Boxed beef prices gained throughout the week. Choice boxed beef traded Friday at $196.33, an increase of $3.31 per hundredweight from the previous Friday. Select boxed beef gained $1.09 for the week to $174.17. The Choice-Select spread finished the week at $22.16 per hundredweight, an increase of $2.22 from the previous week.
