HEDGING WHOLESALE BEEF CUTS

Ted Schroeder and Xiaolou Yang

No 36091, 2001 Annual Meeting, July 8-11, 2001, Logan, Utah from Western Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: Live cattle futures markets do not offer much opportunity for effective hedging of wholesale beef cuts. If a Choice-to-Select price spread futures contract were introduced this would enhance hedging effectiveness although likely not enough to encourage cross hedging. If a Choice boxed beef futures contract were introduced, hedging Choice wholesale beef cuts would be less risky and the addition of a Choice-to-Select price spread would enhance hedging effectiveness especially for Select wholesale beef cuts.
