McGathey “I’m Virginia McGathey here on the floor at the CME Group, reporting to you on the Livestock Market today. Cattle was a little bit lower, weak beef prices really started to add to that market, starting to push it lower and basically from the sell off on Friday. The market really tried to rebound for the last couple of days and its barely holding right now. Early in the week it tried to make somewhat of a comeback, so now trading a little bit sideways.”
