DTN Closing Livestock Comment 09/15 15:36 Cattle Rally Relentlessly Friday Through Friday's end, the cattle contracts rallied as late week support came from strong cash cattle sales. ShayLe Stewart DTN Livestock Analyst GENERAL COMMENTS: The lean hog contracts grew weaker as Friday traded on, but the cattle complex kept its rallying spirit through the week's end.

December corn is down 4 1/4 cents per bushel and December soybean meal is down $7.30. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 246.92 points.
