Feeder Cattle

Feeder cattle are weaned calves that have been raised to be 600-800 lbs.Once a calf reaches a minimum weight, it is sent to a feedlot with the goal of putting on weight aggressively. Traditionally, feeder cattle must be mature enough in order to go to the feedlot and be fattened prior to slaughter. The process of transforming feeder cattle to live cattle usually takes between 3 to 4 months. Once again, the feeder cattle put on weight aggressively in the feed lots to reach the desired finish weight of 1,000-1,300 lbs. Corn is the best way to quickly fatten feeder cattle; therefore, the price of corn has a direct effect on the price of feeder cattle.

Feeder cattle futures contracts:

  • Symbol: FE (open outcry), FC (electronic trading)
  • Contract size: 50,000 lbs. (of feeder cattle)
  • Specs: 649 to 800 lbs
  • Minimum tick: $0.00025 cents per pound (or $12.50 per tick)
  • Limits: $0.03 (or $1,500 per contract)
    *Feeder cattle futures are cash settled, so there is no delivery unlike the live cattle futures.
  • Months traded: Jan, Mar, Apr, May, Apr, Aug, Sep, Oct, and Nov.
    *To arrive at the value of the contract, simply multiply the price of feeder cattle times the size of the contract. For example, if feeder cattle are trading at a price of 1.46550, the total value of the contract is $73,275.00 (50,000 x 1.46550).

Live Cattle

Live cattle futures began trading in 1964 at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) as the first non-storable futures contract. Live cattle are traditionally raised in the Midwest, Southwest, and California (in the US). The term live cattle refers to cattle that have reached the necessary weight for slaughter. Traditionally, live cattle remain on the feedlot for up to 5 months (after being moved from feeder) while they put on an additional 500 lbs. Feed lots go on to sell the live cattle to meat packers that slaughter the cattle. The average slaughter weight is about 1,250 lbs. While slaughtered cattle have value from their hide and other parts, the majority of the price comes from boxed beef cutouts. Boxed beef cutouts are the major cuts that are often deboned and are packed and sealed in cardboard boxes.

Live cattle futures contracts:

  • Ticker symbol: LE (pit trading), LC (electronic trading)
  • Contract size: 40,000 lbs. (of live cattle)
  • Contract specs: 55% Choice, 45% Select, Yield Grade 3 live steers
  • Minimum tic size: $.00025 cents per pound (or $10.00 per tick)
  • Price limits: $0.03
  • Months traded: Feb, Apr, June, Aug, Oct, Dec
    *For example, to arrive at the price of live cattle futures that is trading at 1.24, multiply 1.24 times 40,000- the total value of the contract is $49,600.00.

Den Originallink nimmt GF nicht an wegen irgendwelcher falscher Wörter.

Findet sich unter Daniel s Trading und dann die beiden Begrife goooglen.

Es ist schlicht von einem gewissen Alter und Gewicht abhängig.

Alos insoweit richtig als dem einen noch ein bißchen mehr Zeit bleibt als dem anderen.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
