OMAHA (DTN) -- Cattle and hog futures continue to trade in separate directions at midday with sharp triple-digit losses in August lean hog contracts setting the tone for the lightly traded hog markets. Cattle futures are well off of session highs set earlier in the trading period, but the stability in the market and tightly grouped gains are helping to maintain gains Friday. Trade volume is expected to remain sluggish through the remainder of the trading day, with traders looking for additional direction from both outside markets as well as pork and beef values.
