This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Monday, Feb 11th. Cash activity drives cattle higher in Friday trading. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here’s Virginia McGathey.

McGATHEY … “Today, the live cattle market was higher. There’s a slight uptick in the cash activity and of course it comes right at the end of the week. You know, the wait all the way to the end of the week really was raising some of the bids by the packers and the futures remain in that up-trend that has been in the past month. The USDA report came and went in a whimper with the grain market and of course that just made all the meats really start to rally, including the feeders. The feeders were also on the rise. Futures were reacting to that USDA report, meaning that it was little to write home about and so that just means that there’s a steady march up. Demand seems to be pretty good. Maybe there’s like less participants so the bulls are in control here and pushing the market higher.”
