negatively to the announcement that traces of the HPAI virus had been found in

   The livestock complex fell victim to yet another day of lower closes thanks
to more developments seen in the HPAI virus story. A little cash cattle trade
was reported in the South at $182, which is steady with last week's weighted
average. Hog prices closed lower on the Daily Direct Afternoon hog report, down
$0.36 with a weighted average of $91.49 on 4,288 hogs. May corn closed down 5
1/4 at $4.378 and July soybean meal closed up $3.10 at $349.2. The Dow Jones
Industrial Average is down 42.77 at 38,460.92.
