DTN Closing Livestock Comment 05/20 15:34
   Limited Movement Keeps Volume Light

   Strong early losses in feeder cattle futres slowly but steadily eroded
through the session with traders adjusting from Friday's market swings. Limited
market direction developed in all livestock futures as cattle pressure was
offset by moderate hog market gains.

additional information later in the week. Hog futures remain mixed as limited
buying was driven from deferred contracts and the focus is on long-term demand
growth. Corn futures posted moderate gains in light trade. July futures added 5
3/4 cents per bushel. Dow Jones Index is 84 points lower with Nasdaq down 105
