    Live cattle and lean hog markets were able to make it through Monday without giving up much ground while the feeder cattle market weakened slightly.

    GENERAL COMMENTS:

    With news filtering around about the phase one trade agreement, another packing plant being closed and the fall feeder run under full swing — Monday closed better than assumed.

    Hog prices are up on the National Direct Afternoon Hog Report, up $0.24, with a weighted average of $56.94.

    December corn is down 3 3/4 cents per bushel and December soybean meal is down $0.80. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 55.54 points and NASDAQ is up 73.45 points.
