   A few cash sales have been noted in Iowa and Nebraska at $154 dressed, but
it is likely most cattle trade will hold off until after the release of the
Cattle on Feed report Friday. According to the closing report, the national hog
base is $0.33 lower compared with the Prior Day settlement ($42.50-47.00,
weighted average $45.47). Corn futures closed lower, down 6 1/2 in the
December, March and May contracts.
