DTN Closing Livestock Comment 09/22 16:37
   Nearby Lean Hog Futures Close Ugly Week With Significant Losses

   Lean hog futures closed lower with nearby contracts suffering triple-digit
losses. The cattle complex closed substantially higher, supported by greater
packer spending in the country and technical-buying.
