   The cattle contracts changed their tune come Wednesday and opted to trade
the markets higher. Meanwhile, the lean hog market wasn't as favorable, but the
cash hog market continues to demand attention. Hog prices closed higher on the
National Direct Afternoon, up $1.35 with a weighted average of $57.95 on 9,237
head. March corn is up 4 cents per bushel and January soybean meal is up $7.30.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 461.68 points and NASDAQ is down
283.64 points.
