    • Please be advised the scale located at Syracuse, Kansas for cattle deliveries will be unavailable the week of August 12th-15th of 2008.

      Per Rule, 10104.A. TENDERING A CERTIFICATE market participants anticipating to make delivery should select an alternate CME Group-approved delivery point.
      The seller is responsible for determining, in advance of tendering a Certificate, if the delivery point stockyards will be able to accommodate a live-graded delivery on the sixth business day following the day of tender(fourth business day following the day of tender if tender is on or after the last trading day) should the buyer request one. If the buyer requests a live-graded delivery which the stockyards is unable to accommodate, then this will be deemed a failure by the seller to present a load of cattle for USDA inspection under Rule 10104.B.8. In addition, the Exchange may prohibit deliveries on certain days for certain locations at which it deems deliveries would not be feasible due to auctions or other activities.

      If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact Paul Peterson, Director, Commodity Research & Product Development at (312) 930-4587 or Deliveries at (312) 930-3172.
