Chicago Mercantile Exchange live cattle futures were mostly lower and feeders were mostly higher, watching corn and waiting for the week’s direct business. December live was up $.05 at $151.57 and February was down $.70 at $152.55. January feeders were $.87 higher at $179.45 and March was up $.62 at $181.77.
Direct cash cattle markets were quiet. The big feature was the distribution of this week’s show list, which looks mixed, larger in Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado, smaller in Texas.
