Cattle futures end the week mixed

At the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, live and feeder cattle ended the day mixed ahead of Friday’s Cattle on Feed report.  The report is considered neutral to bullish for prices.  December live cattle closed $.15 lower at $108.10 and February live cattle closed $.12 higher at $110.65.  January feeder cattle closed $.95 lower at $134.60 and March feeder cattle closed $.57 lower at $134.37. 

Direct cash cattle trade finished the week quietly with just a little cleanup business reported following the light business that took place on Thursday.
