   Lean Hogs Run Away With Thursday's Market

   Heading into Friday, all eyes will be on the lean hog market as the complex
continues to grow stronger and stronger.

GENERAL COMMENTS:

   It was a lower day for cattle futures as traders let the markets fall, but
the lean hog contracts leaped higher as traders wanted all they could take in
that market! Hog prices closed lower on the National Direct Afternoon Hog
Report, down $3.72 with a weighted average of $66.56 on 4,554 head. March corn
is up 1/2 cent per bushel and March soybean meal is up $2.50. The Dow Jones
Industrial Average is down 313.26 points and NASDAQ is down 186.24 points.
