DTN Closing Livestock Comment 12/03 16:11
   Livestock Contracts Drift Into Weekend Without Much Excitement

   It was a quiet day for the livestock complex as the market slowly drifted
into Friday's close.

   GENERAL COMMENTS:

   It was a lackadaisical day for the livestock contracts as not a lot rattled
the market in either direction. Looking ahead to Monday, feedlots will be
taking a through inventory of their pens and hoping that packers are aggressive
in next week's market again. Hog prices closed $3.93 higher on the National
Direct Afternoon Hog Report, equating to a weighted average of $61.80 on 12,294
head. March corn is up 7 1/4 cents per bushel and January soybean meal is up
$9.80. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 59.71 points and NASDAQ is down
295.85 points.
