   Cattle Pits to Open with Mixed Prices

   Look for live and feeder cattle contracts to begin with mixed prices as
traders cautiously position before the surfacing of late week cash business.
Lean hog futures should open moderately higher, supported in part by ideas that
the cash market is likely to firm after Labor Day.

Cattle:  Steady-$2 HR  Futures: mixed     Live Equiv $169.21 - 0.78*
Hogs:    $1-2 LR       Futures: 25-50 HR  Lean Equiv $109.24 + 0.44**

   Packers and feedlot managers can forget about those early tee times. Golfing
and other fun in the late summer sun will have to wait until traders do the
hard work of cash negotiations sometime between now and early afternoon.
Opening bids should start out around $150-151 in the South and $240-243 in the
North. Pre Labor Day asking prices should remain firm at $155 plus in the South
and $245 plus in the North. Live and feeder futures should open on a mixed
basis with traders cautiously monitoring cash prospects, perhaps ready to jump
in the opposite direction of the first blink.
