Cattle, hog futures mixed

Cattle, hog futures mixed

At the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, live and feeder cattle were mixed waiting for direct cash business to develop.  Boxed beef was also mixed during the session.  October lives closed $.07 lower at $184.15 and December lives closed $.17 higher at $188.45.  October feeder cattle closed $.20 lower at $261.25 and November feeders closed $.15 higher at $262.90. 

Another quiet day for direct cash cattle business.  Bids nor asking prices surfaced.  It’s likely significant trade volume will likely be delayed until the latter half of the week.
