GENERAL COMMENTS:

Livestock futures are called mixed early Friday with traders focusing on the renewed support in outside markets as well as end-of-week positioning and light technical support developing through the livestock market. Trade volume is expected to remain extremely sluggish through much of the morning in both cattle and hog futures, but could spark additional interest if outside market gains continue. Corn futures are trading higher in early electronic trade. Stock markets are trading higher, with Dow Jones posting a 7 point gain, while Nasdaq is up 2 points.
