Chicago Mercantile Exchange live cattle were mostly lower and feeders were down, watching corn and waiting for the week’s direct business to take shape. December live was down $.52 at $151.95 and February was $.57 lower at $155.25. November feeders were $.70 lower at $176.92 and January was down $1.25 at $178.20.
Direct cash cattle markets generally remained at a standstill. Very limited trade was reported at $152 live, not enough to establish a trend.
