Ahead of Thursday’s USDA WASDE Report, CBOT futures were mostly little changed at the close. Cattle futures closed mostly lower today, pressured by falling boxed beef prices as beef production gets back close to normal. Lean hog futures also closed lower on rising pork production and weaker pork cutouts.
