   Wednesday's trade wasn't favorable for the livestock sector as the live
cattle and lean hog markets still closed lower. Following Monday's drastic
downward nosedive, the feeder cattle complex was able to close higher as
traders saw an opportunity to invest. Hog prices closed higher on the National
Direct Afternoon Hog Report, up $1.38 with a weighted average of $63.22 on
10,347 head. December corn is up 5 cents per bushel and December soybean meal
is up $6.90. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 97.97 points and NASDAQ
is down 31.80 points.
