This is Matt Rice with the Market Line Report for Feb. 28th. Markets heating up as Live and Feeder cattle prices finish neck and neck. Here’s Virginia McGathey with the CME Group as she reports on the Livestock Market.

McGathey “Monday, today the market was higher in the Live cattle, the market had a decent recovery from getting close to the months end and certainly the positioning that’s going on before Wednesday, gave it a little bit of a boost. Now on Friday, they the cattle on feed report and that was really absolutely neutral and so maybe this sell off was a little too much.”
