Trading was mostly inactive in all feeding regions. Not enough sales for an adequate market trend.

In the beef complex today, Choice and Select were both higher with Choice adding $1.81 to trade at $152.06 while Select gained $1.06 to $143.56. On the CME live cattle contracts were narrowly mixed with December falling 15 points to close at $92.65 while February added 60 points to close at $94.15.
