GENERAL COMMENTS:

Livestock futures are expected to open mixed to mostly lower following the bounce higher in prices seen Thursday. The follow-through buyer support seen in the lean hog futures market is expected to be countered with end-of-week positioning in the cattle complex. The upcoming afternoon cattle on feed report may spark additional market movement, but projections have been traded into the market through the week.
