GENERAL COMMENTS:

Livestock futures are under pressure early Wednesday. The continued pressure in the grain market is having very little impact in helping to draw additional buyers back into the market. Trade is expected to be split between the moves in meat value direction through the rest of the week as well as outside market direction. Corn futures are trading lower in early trade. The stock market is trading higher. The Dow Jones Index is 2 points higher while Nasdaq is up 21 points.
