   Livestock Futures See Narrow Gains on Demand

   Livestock traders were encouraged by increased export sales and lower beef
supplies this week, but traders remain cautious given the potential for bearish
news late in the week.

   GENERAL COMMENTS: Initial pressure in lean hog trade eased throughout
Thursday's session, and futures ended mixed to mostly higher. The ability to
bring buyer interest back to cattle and hog futures helped to stabilize the
entire complex. Cash cattle remains light, as most of the needed trade was done
on Wednesday. Light live cattle trade in the North developed at $116 per cwt.
This is $1 per cwt lower than last week and fits in nicely with the general
trend of steady to $2 per cwt lower in all areas. Bids remain on the table at
$114 per cwt live and $184 to $186 per cwt dressed. But it is uncertain whether
additional trade will be seen before the end of the week. The National Daily
Direct afternoon hog report was $0.96 higher ($72-$83, weighted average $80.20)
on 8,306 head sold. Corn futures shifted lower in light trade with July down 4
3/4 cents per bushel. The Dow Jones Index was 351 points lower with NASDAQ down
139 points.
