   Livestock Contracts Savor the Victory of a Fully Higher Close

   Even though the corn market closed higher, that didn't seem to bother the

   It was a rather impressive day throughout the livestock sector, as nearly
the entire complex closed higher, and the market's fundamentals are aligning
for a strong trade later in the week as well. Hog prices closed higher on the
National Direct Afternoon Hog Report, up $1.14 with a weighted average of
$106.08 on 6,205 head. May corn is up 14 1/2 cents per bushel and July soybean
meal is up $3.40. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 256.33 points and
NASDAQ is down 128.50 points.
