Cattle on Feed Preview

OMAHA (DTN) — Little significant change is expected in the Cattle on Feed report Friday with current estimates pegging total animals on feed at 99.7% of year-ago levels. The expected 4% reduction in cattle placements through February will likely be the main focus of the report and pre-report adjustments. These numbers appear to have already been partially factored into the market given the strong market shifts over the last two weeks.
