GENERAL COMMENTS:

Livestock markets are trading mostly higher in nearby contracts in front of opening bell Thursday. The light support seems to be a reflection of very little market news and traders focus squarely on the grain market surrounding the USDA report release later in the morning. Narrow gains are seen both nearby live cattle and lean hog futures with very little additional direction expected to develop before midday. Corn futures are trading higher in early trade. The stock market is trading higher. Dow Jones is 141 points higher, and Nasdaq is up 38 points.
