## Transcription

2 The basis risk for feeding cattle is much less than the price risk. The range for the actual basis is approximately \$7.75/cwt. while the range for the cash price is \$43.35/cwt. The standard deviation for basis (\$1.46/cwt.) is also much lower than the price risk (\$8.31/cwt.). Table 2 shows the monthly average returns and the percentage of months that a breakeven price or better could be hedged based on the month the cattle are sold. In all months selling cattle the cash market proved to produce the highest average return as shown by the black cells. However, in half of the months there are times when other strategies produce higher or the same percentage of positive average returns as the cash market. The gray cells indicate the highest percentage of returns greater than zero for each month. During the first six months of the year use of any of the marketing strategies would have resulted in a high probability of positive returns. The same cannot be said of July and August, where any strategy used would have resulted in an average loss. However, for these months the cash market and 50% futures have the highest percentage of positive returns. The later months of the year received positive returns; however, they aren t as high as the first of the year returns. The number of positive returns has increased over the past five years. For every strategy evaluated, during at least one month of the year it has the greatest percentage of returns larger than zero. Table 2: Average Return and Percent with Positive Returns by Sales Month and Marketing Strategy Sales Date Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Cash (\$/cwt) % greater than \$ Futures (\$/cwt) % greater than \$ % futures (\$/cwt) % greater than \$ OTM Put (\$/cwt) % greater than \$ ATM Put (\$/cwt) % greater than \$ ITM Put (\$/cwt) % greater than \$ Black cells indicate the highest average monthly return Gray cells indicates the highest percentage of years with positive returns for each month For example, April cash sales generated a positive return average in all 19 years (80%) with an average return of \$4.49/cwt. This is a decrease of \$0.66 over the past five years. August cash sales produced returns that averaged \$-0.14 and were positive 45 % of the 19 years. However, futures in August were positive only 40% of the years and the average return was \$-1.28/cwt. Graph 1 shows the frequency distribution of the returns per hundredweight. The cash market historically had the highest probability of a large profit or a large loss. Use of futures narrows the percentage of returns, with 68 percent of the returns falling between \$0.00 and \$5.00/cwt. Hedging 50 percent of the cattle are skewed to the right and offered increased risks of losing money (38%) and earning more than \$2.50/cwt. (62%). 2

The marketing decisions discussed above represent a very simple strategy, following the same marketing approach for 19 years and comparing the results. By applying some simple if then statements, several decisions can be evaluated: Rule # 1: if hedge price using futures is greater than the expected breakeven cost of production, hedge, otherwise use other futures or option strategy Rule #2: if the hedge price using futures is greater than the expected breakeven cost of production minus \$1, hedge, otherwise use other future or option strategy Rule #3: if the hedge price using futures is greater than the expected breakeven cost of production minus \$2, hedge, otherwise use other futures or option strategy 3

Summary of Returns to Selected if-then-else Management Strategies Positive Returns without added Management Average Min Max St Dev returns % Cash % Cash price % NA Futures hedge price % 39% Hedge 50% % 39% 1 OTM Put % 14% ATM Put % 18% 1 ITM Put % 25% Management Rule # 1 if placement>breakeven hedge, cash % 7% if placement>breakeven hedge, 1 OTM put % 11% if placement>breakeven hedge, 50 futures % 11% if placement>breakeven hedge, ATM put % 7% Management Rule # 2 if placement>breakeven -1 hedge, cash % 9% if placement>breakeven -1 hedge, 1 OTM put % 9% if placement>breakeven -1 hedge, 50 futures % 11% if placement>breakeven -1 hedge, ATM put % 9% Management Rule # 3 if placement>breakeven -2 hedge, cash % 9% if placement>breakeven -2 hedge, 1 OTM put % 10% if placement>breakeven -2 hedge, 50 futures % 11% if placement>breakeven -2 hedge, ATM put % 10% Rule # 1 produced similar results to Table 1 but the percent of times with a higher return was minimally higher. Both the 1 OTM put and the ATM put had higher average returns than the option only returns. The standard deviation also decreased slightly. Rule # 2 still produces a similar percentage of returns greater than zero although the average return for each risk management tool decreases slightly from Rule # 1. However, the standard deviation also decreases, showing reduced risk in this case. Rule # 2 shows the results of a producer hedging when the breakeven price is \$1 higher than the expected hedge price at cattle placement. Rule # 3 is similar to Rule #2. Rule # 3 shows the results of a producer hedging when the breakeven price is \$2 higher than the expected hedge price at time of cattle placement. Average return and the percentage of returns that are greater than zero both fall. However, the percentage of returns that beat cash is slightly higher than Rule #2 and Rule #3. All three strategies offer greater returns to the producer using the if then statements to selectively hedge. If the producer strictly hedges over the 19-year time period the average return to the producer would be \$-0.24/cwt. All the different strategies in Rules #1, # 2, and #3 offer greater returns as well as a higher standard deviation. While average returns were lower than cash only, these steps-wise decision rules offer slightly reduced risk. Beats 4

Frequency Distribution of Returns to Cattle Feeding Using Various Marketing Strategies 30% Cash price 25% Futures hedge price if placement>breakeven hedge, cash 20% if placement>breakeven 1 hedge, cash if placement>breakeven 2 hedge, cash 15% 10% 5% 0% 7.50 and lower 7.49 to to to to to to and greater Returns (\$/cwt.) Graph 3: Frequency Distribution of Returns to Cattle Feeding Using Various Marketing Strategies 30% 25% 20% Cash price Futures hedge price if placement>breakeven hedge, 1 OTM put if placement>breakeven 1 hedge, 1 OTM put if placement>breakeven 2 hedge, 1 OTM put 15% 10% 5% 0% 7.50 and lower 7.49 to to to to to to and greater Returns (\$/cwt.) 5

6 Graphs two and three show the frequency distribution of returns when two different if-then statements are applied to marketing strategies. Graph # 2 shows the frequency of returns when a producer hedges with Futures if the Futures price is greater than the estimated breakeven cost and stays in the cash market if the futures price is less than the estimated breakeven cost. Graph # 3 shows the frequency of returns when a producer hedges with futures if the futures price is greater than the estimated breakeven cost and buys a 1 OTM put option if the futures price is less than the estimated breakeven cost. It is interesting to note that the graphs are very similar. This shows that purchasing the put option has a negligible effect on the distribution of returns. The distributions of returns are very similar but the put option still provides valuable downside protection while still leaving most of the upside open. In conclusion, a producer has many ways to manage fed cattle price risk. With the six strategies that were evaluated cash price, Futures, 50% Futures, 1 OTM put, ATM put and 1ITM put, there isn t one strategy that can be distinguished as the best money maker or the risk neutralizer. Each simple strategy has its own advantages and disadvantages that are shown in the study. One approach may have the highest average return, but yield a low percentage of positive returns, and vice versa. One way for a producer to minimize even more risk is to incorporate if-then management strategies. These strategies have shown to have lower average returns, but reduce price risk slightly more than the simple approaches. 6
