GENERAL COMMENTS

Activity in cattle country this morning remains very limited with just a few starter bids evident in parts of the Nebraska and Iowa at $239-$240. Early asking prices are firm around $153 in the South and $246-plus in the North. Hog buyers have resumed work in the early rounds with bids steady to $1 lower. Most accounts seemed to be working with steady money. The corn market has opened 2-4 cents higher, supported by cold and rainy forecasts that threatened to delay early planting progress.
