   Larger Than Expected Cattle on Feed Numbers

   Cattle on feed totaled 11.23 million head Sept. 1. This is 1% below year-ago
levels, but still well above pre-report estimates. Cattle on feed numbers are
the second highest total since 1996. Total hog numbers fell 4% from year-ago
levels, with reductions in all significant categories.
