McGathey “I’m Virginia McGathey here on the floor of the CME, reporting to you on the Livestock Market. Live Cattle higher today, steady bids really makes the boards look like it’s very cheap and the bargain hunters really stepped in to buy. It really had a definite solid rally today and I think partially because some of the cattle producers were caught a little bit short and wanted to make their purchases ahead of this long weekend.”
