   The cash cattle trade was very quiet through the day with just a small
handful of deals reported in parts of the North (i.e., $190 dressed, $120
live). According to the closing report, the national hog base is $0.59 lower
($52-$58.25, weighted average $57.48). The corn trade closed generally 2 cents
lower, pressured by large harvest supplies and slow export biz. The stock
market closed higher with the Dow up 187 points and the Nasdaq better by 87.
