This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Monday, Mar 4th. Packer shortages leave cattle prices solid. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here's Virginia McGathey.

McGATHEY ... "The cattle market, it firmed up. Those short-fought packers really are reaching for the market right now so we're kind of watching to see if maybe they're going to start to push the market somewhat higher. Everything looks good. We're still in that same channel and here we are first of the month, market still looks good. Now, there's a little bit of tell coming up, but feeders were considerably lower. There was uncertainty if bringing in some of the sellers because we're just not very sure. The weekend is just too long to carry these long positions and there's a worry about the cat and mouse game with the feed lots and packers, whether they're going to continue playing the game that they've been playing recently where you don't get much cash trade early on. It all comes at the end of the week when the market continues to push higher."
