DTN Closing Livestock Comment 10/31 15:44
   Short-Covering Pushes Live Hog Futures at Week's Close

   Live hog contracts finished significantly higher, supported by late-week
short-covering and hog/cattle spreading. The cattle complex finished mostly
lower with selling interest focused on nearby live contracts.
