DTN Closing Livestock Comment 01/24 16:09
   Livestock Contracts Close Lower

   It may have been a shortened week but with the up and downs throughout the
complex, contracts are exhausted and traders are looking forward to taking the
weekend off from this week's madness.

   GENERAL COMMENTS:

   The livestock complex didn't fare too well this week. The lean hog market
seemed to have a good run, then the board sold off Friday but cash prices
thankfully stayed the course. Hog prices are higher on the National Direct
Afternoon Hog Report, up $0.59 with a weighted average of $52.73. March corn is
down 6 1/2 cents per bushel and March soybean meal is down $0.60. The Dow Jones
Industrial Average is down 170.36 points and NASDAQ is down 87.57 points.
