Traders in the 10-year bond options pit at the Chicago Board of Trade signal orders.

U.S. government debt prices fell on Friday morning as stocks fell in the wake of a mixed January jobs report.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose to 1.85 percent, with the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond at 2.69 percent.

The U.S. economy added 151,000 jobs in January, missing expectations. But the unemployment rate fell to 4.9 percent from 5.0 percent, while wages rose 0.5 percent on a monthly basis.
