   Activity in feedlot country was limited to scattered sales (i.e., $120 in
Kansas, $2 lower than Wednesday, $11 below last week). Some producers might
have traded more cattle, but were discouraged by still lower bids. According to
the closing report, the national hog base is .71 lower ($84.00-88.00, weighted
average $86.09). Corn futures settled generally 6 cents lower, pressured by
forecasts for mild summer temperatures over the next 10 days. The stock market
closed on a mixed basis, up 2 points on the Nasdaq and off 12 on the Dow. `
