DTN Closing Livestock Comment 01/05 16:13 Feedlots Keep the Cash Market Steady to $0.50 Higher Come Friday, the market will be watching for the export report along with any new cash cattle trade developments. ShayLe Stewart DTN Livestock Analyst GENERAL COMMENTS Feedlots had to work to keep the cash market steady to $0.50 higher, but with just a little bit of commitment, they were able to get the job done.

Hog prices closed higher on the Daily Direct Afternoon Hog Report, up $0.92 with a weighted average $74.39 on 11,225 head. March corn is down 1 cent per bushel and March soybean meal is up $2.20.
