Live Cattle Contracts

The CME Group provides the industry an avenue for fed cattle producers to manage risk through Live Cattle Contracts. TCFA supports efforts that provide producers with a viable risk management tool that represents the underlying physical commodity. Recently, the CME Group has chosen to include fed heifers to the deliverable supply. TCFA and NCBA have worked diligently to provide background information and feel the inclusion of fed heifers in the deliverable supply is paramount in maintaining a viable Live Cattle Contract.
