Strong follow-through gains are starting to develop in front-month live cattle and lean hog futures Friday morning. But beyond front month contracts, there seems to be uncertainty about drawing additional longer term interest into the market. Not only are traders looking for additional fundamental direction, but end-of-month positioning is likely to be seen through the session Friday.
