GENERAL COMMENTS

Cattle buying interest is light this morning with a few starter bids evident in parts of the North at $255-257. Asking prices remain firm at $168-170 in the South and $265-270 in the North. Opening cash hog bids appear to be steady to $1 lower. At this time, plans for a Saturday hog kill are strictly minimal. The corn market is several cents lower in the early going tied in part to disappointing export sales and a general lack of buying interest.
