Cattle Call: CME Group’s David Lehman Explains Changes to Cattle Contract Specs

Futures markets exist primarily as a risk management tool for participants. As such, a futures contract is most effective if and when it reflects the fundamentals in the underlying cash market. On August 5, 2016, CME Group announced several changes to its live cattle futures contracts to do just that.

John Lothian News spoke with Dave Lehman, managing director of commodity research and product development at CME Group, about the changes which, pending CFTC approval, will go into effect later in August 2016.
