GENERAL COMMENTS:

   Cash cattle market activity is expected to remain sluggish early Tuesday
morning with bids and asking prices undeveloped at this point. It is expected
to be midweek or later before interest starts to be seen by packers, which will
continue to limit overall direction through the complex until late in the week.
Futures trade is expected to remain generally firm following the strong
underlying support that flooded back into the market late last week. But the
question of market activity will limit the overall to develop and sustain
increased trade activity with traders looking for additional longer-term
support through the end of the month.
