Schellady “Really what we started off looking at here this morning was Live Cattle, yesterday’s USDA report kind of revised production a little higher. So, as you can see cattle starting to melt towards the end of the day. I think, really we didn’t have any new buyers we just peppering the market with sellers and the market just kind of started to roll over.”
