   Cattle and Hog Futures Staged for Mixed, Late-Week Opening

   Look for the cattle complex to open on a mixed basis as traders position
ahead of cash and on feed news. Lean hog contracts are also set to begin with
uneven action in light volume.

Cattle: Steady-$2 HR   Futures: mixed   Live Equiv $130.40 - 0.24*
Hogs:   $1-2 LR        Futures: mixed   Lean Equiv $78.31 - $3.28**

* based on formula estimating live cattle equivalent of gross packer revenue

GENERAL COMMENTS:

   Once again cattle buyers and sellers have reached the last business day of
the week with not a hoof traded. Moderate trade volume will have to develop
sometime today, perhaps not until the feedlot inventory hit the press. Packers
bids are likely to begin this morning around $104-105 live and $165-168
dressed, still far below asking prices of $119 in the South and $172-174 in the
North. The September on feed report is scheduled to be released this afternoon
at 2:00 CDT. Average trade guesses look like thing: on feed, up 2-3 percent;
placed in August, off 2-3 percent; marketed n August, up 6 percent. Live and
feeder futures are staged to open on a mixed basis as traders position ahead of
cash and on feed news.
