This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Wednesday, Feb 20th. Cattle futures trade at a large premium to the cash market. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here's Terry Roggensack.

ROGGENSACK ... "The cash market doesn't seem to be keep up with the futures market. The futures market continues to climb. April cattle today trading up above $129 for the futures market. The cash market on Friday, $125 in Kansas and in Texas, and we traded $124 in Nebraska. So, futures, big premium to the cash. Second factor, is that the market, a little bit overdone. Seems to be that the overbought condition of the cattle market bases the commitments to traders report and the weak seasonal period ahead for beef market."
