GENERAL COMMENTS:

Livestock futures are expected to begin on the defensive once again following the sharp losses seen late last week. But there are growing questions about just how much downward pressure cash be realistically expected in both the cattle and hog markets given the potentially tight supplies through the upcoming year as well as upcoming seasonal support likely to develop. Corn futures are trading lower in early electronic trade. Stock markets are trading lower, with Dow Jones posting a 35 point loss, while Nasdaq is down 5 points.
