   It was a lousy day for the livestock contracts as all three markets closed
mostly lower, but the cattle contracts endured the brunt of the day's downturn.

   It was a brutal day for the livestock complex as the contracts turned lower
across all three markets largely thanks to the likelihood that a government
shutdown could occur. Hog prices closed lower on the Daily Direct Afternoon Hog
Report, down $0.66 with a weighted average price of $76.88 on 7,201 head.
December corn is down 1 1/2 cents per bushel and December soybean meal is up
$2.90. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 377.06 points.
