GENERAL COMMENTS:

Trade is expected to remain extremely light through the livestock complex with traders in the cattle complex focusing on the push higher last week in cash prices, but still uncertain if demand will be able to support this optimism. Tight supplies continue to remain the focus, although seasonally lackluster demand could continue to keep markets sluggish. Corn futures are trading higher in early electronic trade. Stock markets are trading lower, with Dow Jones posting a 109 point loss, while Nasdaq is down 15 points.
