   The painful week of losses in both cattle and hog prices finally came to a
close Friday, capped by a bearish Cattle on Feed report that showed inventory
at 11.7 million head, up 4% year-over-year. Hog prices closed lower on the
National Direct Afternoon Hog Report, down $1.27 with a weighted average of
$59.55 on 5,161 head. December corn closed up 3 cents per bushel and December
soybean meal closed up $4 per ton. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 28
points and NASDAQ is up 29 points.
