GENERAL COMMENTS:

Feeder cattle futures have been the main attraction of the livestock complex. Contrary to the moves earlier in the week, prices have shot sharply higher with gains seen between $3 and $4 per cwt through much of the morning. This is due to the increased trading limit in the feeder cattle complex of $4.50 per cwt which was implemented Thursday. Corn prices are lower in light trade. March corn futures are 3 cents per bushel lower. Stock markets are mixed in light trade. The Dow Jones is 8 points lower while Nasdaq is up 9 points.
