confident that the market's recent gains will continue. Heading into Friday,
the market will be heavily watching cash cattle trade. Hog prices closed lower

of $37.99 on 10,784 head. December corn is up 1/2 cent per bushel and December
soybean meal is down $1.80. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 185.46
