Marketline Report Monday, July 10th
McGathey ... "The market is really looking for direction, but we've had light demand. Some of the cash sales have been really slowed down. It makes it very difficult for our market to move anywhere right now. We were normally expecting perhaps a bump in the market where feeders were steady today as well and that market was still looking for that post-July 4th bump to really give us a little bit of a head of steam here. It hasn't come yet, but perhaps it's a little bit late. Certainly, these triple-digit temperatures in the Northern Plains are definitely going to start to affect the cattle and the feeder markets. Right now, we expect that the feeding is going to be less and some of the weights may be reduced somewhat."
