DTN Closing Livestock Comment 12/08 16:00
   Friday Moves Record Active Gains

   The combination of late-week short covering, light trade and a neutral to
friendly WASDE report helped to push livestock future higher Friday afternoon.
Triple-digit gains seen in most contracts is helping to end the week on a
positive note, creating some stability going into next week's trade.
