   The livestock complex rounded out Monday's trade mixed as the feeder cattle
market shot lower in reaction to the corn market's higher trend, but both the
live cattle and lean hog contracts closed mostly higher. Hog prices closed
lower on the Daily Direct Afternoon Hog Report, down $0.58 with a weighted
average price of $70.91 on 4,016 head. March corn is up 7 1/4 cents per bushel
and May soybean meal is up $0.60. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down
28.34 points.
