CBOT futures closed slightly higher on news that Democrat leaders have agreed to vote on the USMCA, a “neutral” WASDE report from USDA, that President Trump may wait on the December 15 tariff increases, and signs that US and China are getting nearer to a Phase 1 trade deal. Cattle futures closed narrowly mixed on a lack of significant market news. Lean hog futures closed higher with deferred contracts the strongest.
