DTN Closing Livestock Comment 09/18 16:05
   Live and Feeder Cattle Futures Pull Mostly Lower

   The cattle complex quickly surrendered much of Wednesday's rally, pressured
by pre-report long liquidation, profit taking, and beef demand nervousness. The
lean hog pit closed mixed with most of the selling interest focused on spot
October.

GENERAL COMMENTS:

   Feedlot country remained very quiet with just a few scattered bids reported
in part of Kansas (i.e., $155) and Nebraska (i.e., $244-245). Nominal bids
remained firm at $164 in the South and $253-$255 in the North. According to the
closing report, the Iowa hog base 0.29 higher compared with the Prior Day
settlement ($102.25-$106.00, weighted average $104.87). Corn futures drifted
another 3-4 cents lower, pressured by open weather promising of an early
harvest. The stock market rose on Thursday as investors continued to celebrate
the Fed's renewed vow to keep benchmark rates low. The Dow closed 109 points
higher with the Nasdaq better by 31.
