At the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, live and feeder cattle ended the day higher, waiting for direct cash business to develop. There was also support from the recent higher moves in boxed beef and the lower move in corn. December lives closed $1.57 higher at $151.35 and February lives closed $1.47 higher at $154.25. November feeders closed $.25 higher at $178.07 and January feeders closed $.87 higher at $180.07.
A very light day for direct cash cattle trade.
