CBOT futures closed lower with soybean futures leading the way down. Markets were pressured by a negative outlook for US/China trade relations following rhetoric between VP Pence and a Chinese leader at a weekend summit. Cattle futures closed higher, supported by firmer boxed beef and the strong 2-day rally in Lean Hog futures. Lean Hog futures closed higher on follow-through buying after the $3.00 limit-UP move on Friday.
