GENERAL COMMENTS:

Livestock futures are expected to open mostly mixed to slightly higher early Monday. Any short covering possible after pressure across the market late last week will be contrasted with the building pressure in the grain complex. Trade volume may remain sluggish through most of the morning with traders likely to put additional focus on the potential movement in meat values. Corn futures are trading lower in early trade. The stock market is trading mixed. Dow Jones is 11 points lower, and Nasdaq is up 3 points.
