In other action, bellies were higher, live cattle mixed, and feeder cattle finished mostly higher.

Short-covering and rolling of short positions out of December into February also helped lift the front-month, which hit a one-month high and closed at its highest level since Oct. 23.

December closed at 55.75 cents per pound with a 1.7% gain on the day. Most-active February was down 25 points at 62.75.

Strength in December helped pull the deferred contracts off their early-session lows and resulted in narrowly mixed closes from April through December '08.
