Direct cash cattle trade ended the day quiet and cash hogs closed lower.
At the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, live cattle futures were down and feeders were sharply lower in thin trade ahead of the day off for Thanksgiving.

January feeders were $2.42 lower at $179.25 and March was down $2.22 at $182.35.
