GENERAL COMMENTS:

The cash cattle trade remained untested in the face of light packer demand and scattered, half-hearted bids. Asking prices remained firm at $162-plus in the South and $260-plus in the North. According to the closing report, the Iowa hog base closed $0.44 higher compared with the Prior Day settlement ($61.00-$67.50, weighted average $66.48). The corn market settled 4-plus cents higher as spec-buying interest offset somewhat disappointing export news. U.S. stocks closed narrowly mixed with stocks near recent highs. The Dow closed 10 points lower with the Nasdaq better by 20.
