   Livestock Values Expected Under Pressure Early Tuesday

   Firm weakness early in the week is expected to draw additional market
pressure in both futures and cash markets early Tuesday. The overall tone of
the market is likely to remain weak although light trade volume and lackluster
market direction is expected through much of the morning.

   Overall interest through the cash cattle market is expected to remain quiet
once again early Tuesday morning with potential bids developing later in the
day, although it is unexpected that trade will be seen until late in the week.
Continued pressure in futures trade is expected to develop as traders remain
focused on the potential of increasing supply levels in the upcoming Cattle on
Feed report. Following the pressure in cash cattle trade over the last couple
of weeks, follow-through pressure is likely to develop in cash markets,
although feeders will attempt to limit losses as asking prices become more
established through the day Tuesday.
