CBOT futures closed narrowly mixed with futures settling closer to the day’s highs than the lows. Cattle futures closed mostly higher after opening lower in sympathy with the sharp drop in U.S. equity markets on concerns that COVID cases are rising. Lean Hog futures closed slightly higher after opening lower like most ag futures did.
