Posted 09:41 — The U.S. Energy Department (DOE) said ethanol production increased from 1.011 to 1.041 million barrels per day last week, putting total production in 2022-23 close to last year’s pace. U.S. ethanol inventory increased, however, 21.3 to 22.8 million barrels, up from the lowest total this year. March corn is down 3/4 cent and January crude oil is down $4.08, even after DOE said crude oil inventory was down 3.7 million barrels last week.

Posted 08:36 — After Wednesday’s 8:30 a.m. CST open, January crude oil is trading down $2.51, putting early bearish pressure on soybean oil with ongoing concerns about increased COVID-19 restrictions in China and the anticipation of a G7 price cap on Russian oil. March corn is up 2 1/2 cents and January soybeans are down 1 1/4 cents. March KC wheat is down 1 3/4 cents with a chance for light to moderate rains in the northwestern U.S. Plains next week, possibly reaching as far south as the Kansas border. March Minneapolis wheat is up 1 1/2 cents. Dow Jones futures are up 27 points, the U.S. Dollar Index is down 0.44 and December gold is down $2.90.

Posted 11:39 — February live cattle are down $0.60 at $155.825, January feeder cattle are down $2.03 at $179.65, February lean hogs are down $0.53 at $89.55, December corn is up 3 1/4 cents per bushel and December soybean meal is up $1.20. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 12.03 points. It’s a glorious day for the cash cattle market, as feedlots have again been rewarded for their patience. There’s been a light movement in the North at $245 dressed, which is $3 higher than last week’s weighted average.

Posted 08:33 — February live cattle are up $0.10 at $156.525, January feeder cattle are up $0.15 at $181.825, February lean hogs are down $0.23 at $89.85, December corn is up 1/4 cent per bushel and December soybean meal is up $0.40. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 9.54 points. Cash cattle should see more business develop throughout the day as the market has yet to be tested. Asking prices in the South are noted at $154 to $155, but are still unestablished in the North.
