   Uncertain Trading Anticipated

   Trading in cattle was not very volatile. After spending some time in
negative territory, futures were able to climb and close higher. Hogs moved in
the opposite direction and continued to show weakness as the day progressed.

in "resolute countermeasures' if the boycott takes place. This could have
implications for meat exports.

will not last forever. Packers are adding to the ownership of differed cattle
positioning themselves for the disruption of the holiday period. Boxed beef
declined with choice down $1.83 and select down $0.79. The Commitment of
Traders report showed funds as net buyers of 9,484 contracts bringing their
net-long positions to 78,527 contracts.
