DTN Closing Livestock Comment 06/02 16:24
   Cattle Close Sharply Lower, Lean Hogs Mixed

   The cattle contracts had a rough Tuesday, especially in nearby contracts,
while the lean hog market was able to close mildly higher in deferred

   Cattle contracts had a tough Tuesday as support seemed to be nearly
impossible to find. Gauging how fast and how far the market will drop on the
live cattle spectrum seems to be everyone's concern heading into June and
nearing the dog days of summer. Hog prices closed higher on the National Direct
Afternoon Hog Report, up $0.74 with a weighted average of $34.60 on 6,350 head
sold. July corn is up 1 cent per bushel and July soybean meal is up $0.60. The
Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 267.63 points and NASDAQ is up 56.33 points.
