DTN Closing Livestock Comment 04/01 16:10
   Futures Head Into Thursday With Expanded Limits

   Wednesday was a brutal trading day; all three livestock futures markets
closed limit lower.

   GENERAL COMMENTS:

   Thursday could be another tough day as pressure looms over livestock
contracts and support for the board is absent, putting cash prices in a tough
spot. Hog prices are significantly lower on the National Direct Afternoon Hog
Report, down $4.63 with a weighted average of $48.55. May corn is down 6 cents
per bushel and May soybean meal is down $6.60. The Dow Jones Industrial Average
is down 973.65 points and NASDAQ is down 339.52 points.
