Cattle Prices Just Jumped

The cowpocalypse is now upon us.

Live cattle prices jumped as much as 1.7 per cent — about $2 to $120.21 today as the market begins taking stock of the massive herd sell-off caused by ranchers unable to feed their livestock.

Hog trading was flat and now sits at $95.300.

Corn prices, meanwhile, continued their bull run to $7.94/bu, a gain of 1.72 per cent.
