McGathey “Cattle, up again, still surging for an eighth day. This is really a record for this time of year. We really expected easing of the market for the past six weeks and it was not to happen. The market still looks very strong. Cash prices last week were actually up and that’s what gave the market a kick today. Certainly, the feeder cattle have been up surging even further. They are actually leading the way of the livestock market because it seems like the beef production is up and that definitely shows there’s more optimism on the horizon and so that’s pushing the market higher.”
