market shot lower in reaction to the corn market's higher trend, but both the

lower on the Daily Direct Afternoon Hog Report, down $0.58 with a weighted
average price of $70.91 on 4,016 head. March corn is up 7 1/4 cents per bushel
and May soybean meal is up $0.60. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down
28.34 points.
