   Heading into Friday's market, the livestock complex is hoping the market
doesn't see much more deterioration ahead of the week's close.

   Thursday wasn't a supportive day for the livestock complex. The nearby live
cattle contracts were able to post a mild recovery, but the deferred contracts
still closed lower as consumer demand remains questionable. Hog prices closed
lower on the Daily Direct Afternoon Hog Report, down $1.18 with a weighted
average of $110.51 on 7,997 head. July corn is up 1 3/4 cents per bushel and
July soybean meal is up $11.30. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down 236.94
