Live cattle basis

Postby redrobin » Thu May 11, 2017 6:15 pm

The basis between cash live cattle and the live cattle board is 16 dollars per cwt. That is amazingly wide and I'd expect a correction that would bring these two numbers closer to 10 dollars apart.

Right on the basis - be a lot of delivery against the board if things don't correct

Basis down to 12 dollars which is still too wide.
