The global financial turmoil touched off last week with the Euro losing value due to Greece being on the brink of bankruptcy drove Wall Street and the commodities markets lower with pour over effect of lower live cattle prices. Qualtiy of calves fell off from last week’s strong offering and prices followed. Feeder cattle were $2-$5/cwt lower. However, bred cows and pairs were higher compared to last week as producers push to rebuild inventory. Packer prices also pushed higher.
