DTN Closing Livestock Comment 11/09 17:56
   Beef Futures Exit Week With Ugly Losses, Disappointed by Reluctant Packer

   Live and feeder closed with triple-digit losses, pulled lower by faltering
country bids and tough wholesale beef demand. Lean hog futures settled mostly
lower with 2019 contracts catching the most selling interest.
