GENERAL COMMENTS:

The market is expected to be focused around the early movement in the cattle complex following the bullish cattle on feed report Friday. Although there still remains significant questions about the ability to move wholesale beef values higher, the supply side of the market should remain tight, giving at least initial optimism. Lean hog futures are expected to open slightly higher with some momentum borrowed from the cattle complex early Monday. Corn futures are trading lower in early electronic trade. Stock markets are trading higher, with Dow Jones posting a 15-point gain, while Nasdaq is up 6 points.
