Chicago Mercantile Exchange live and feeder were lower ahead of the week’s widespread direct business. Feeders picked up additional pressure from the higher move in corn. December live was $.52 lower at $152.47 and February was down $.50 at $155.82. November feeders were down $.25 at $177.62 and January was $.92 lower at $179.45.
Direct cash cattle markets were quiet. The big feature was the distribution of this week’s show list, with widespread business not expected until the second half of the week.
