Thursday came and went, leaving the complex undecided on how fat cattle
should trade and leaving the board largely mixed. Hog prices are lower on the

$47.94. March corn is up 6 1/2 cents per bushel and January soybean meal is
down $0.80. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 201.63 points and NASDAQ is
