GENERAL COMMENTS:

Livestock futures are mixed with traders focusing both on the potential to limit additional cattle and hog movement following the recent Midwest storm system. But traders remain cautious, with most on the sidelines as traders look for additional direction from end of the week fundamentals. Given the wide price shifts this week, end-of-the-week positioning is likely to develop also. Corn futures are trading higher in early electronic trade. Stock markets are trading higher, with Dow Jones posting a 54 point gain, while Nasdaq is up 15 points.
