Live Cattle Futures Quotes

Commodity and futures prices like live cattle prices are usually quoted the same way prices are quoted in the cash market (physical market). That is, in dollars, cents, and sometimes fractions of a cent. Different commodities are quoted in different trading units. Live cattle prices are quoted per ounce. Be certain you understand the price quotation system for the particular commodity that you consider trading.
