OMAHA (DTN) -- Light to moderate gains have quickly developed in the lean hog futures markets as traders try to draw additional support back into the market following Friday's pressure. Nearby contracts are holding 20 to 30 cent gains, but the depth of buyer support remains uncertain. Cattle futures are under pressure with early selling sparked by a weaker cattle on feed report late last week. Trade volume in the live cattle market is expected to slow as the morning progresses.
