SHARE NOW

Chicago Mercantile Exchange live and feeder cattle futures were mixed, consolidating at the end of the year, with boxed beef mixed at midday. There was periodic support from the week’s higher direct trade, but not enough to pull contracts to a fully higher finish. February live was down $.42 at $168.50 and April was $.02 lower at $172.25. January feeders were down $.17 at $222.30 and March was $.02 lower at $223.10.

Direct cash cattle markets are mostly quiet.
