TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
U.S. The Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that by the end of May this year, frozen beef stocks in the United States were 13% lower than the same period in 2018. Will the Fcattle quotations increase?
According to the USDA, the daily slaughter of cattle (cattle) in the United States last week amounted to 122 thousand heads, which is almost 2% more than last year. We also note that by June 1 of this year, the number of cattle in the US feedlots reached a historical maximum of 11.7 million heads, which was 2% on June 1, 2018. Meanwhile, in May, deliveries of cows to feedlots decreased by 3% from last year’s level. If this trend of reduction has lasted in June, then the livestock as of July 1 may decrease. This is able to push quotes up. June data will be published on July 19.
