Pork bellies ended up sharply, live cattle settled mainly lower and feeder cattle posted session losses.

Lean hogs rose on the open fueled by short covering and spot-April and nearby-June's oversold Relative Strength Index conditions. Also, notions that Tuesday's futures tumble was exaggerated, and April's new contract low on Tuesday, motivated prospective bulls.
