Alberta Beef Producers Daily Report: Alberta CA

Alberta direct cattle sales Tuesday saw no new trade to report but there is a chance scattered trade could develop by this afternoon. Technical price levels have improved since Monday. Many producers carried cattle into this week and there will be additional pressure to sell cattle. Right now one of the biggest threats facing both the Canadian and US markets is losing currentness and backing cattle up.
