   Just a few cash cattle sales noted in Iowa today at $148. The rest of cattle
country was quiet. According to the closing report, the Iowa hog base closed
$0.13 higher compared with the Prior Day settlement ($66.00-$75.00, weighted
average $74.75). Corn futures closed quite a bit higher following a USDA report
that showed lower than expected stocks. July was 30 3/4 higher; December was 29
1/4 higher.
