This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Thursday, Aug 22nd. Optimism in the feeder market lifts cattle trader's spirits Wednesday. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here's Virginia McGathey.

McGATHEY ... "Today in the livestock complex, we saw cattle higher. Improved beef values have helped a lot. There's been a surge in that boxed beef portion that has increased packer margins. That's really helping and offering some underlying support. There's nice gains for the first time since July so that's keeping the market a little bit more buoyant. Feeders were also firmed up and that's just showing optimism is starting to gain some momentum. We're looking ahead to the Cattle On Feed Report coming on Friday. We're expecting possibly bullish news so that has traders a little bit more optimistic, as I said earlier. The gains keep moving up as the grain market keeps moving down so that definitely is going to help quite a bit. So, we're going to also keep an eye out for what's happening with the yields on the grain market."
