DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning and we suspect that other
than a little clean up trade, business is essentially done for the week
following yesterday's light to moderate trade in the South with live sale at
mostly 145.00-146. Trading was moderate to active in the North with dressed
deals marked at mostly 236-238, a few early at 240. There was a larger
string that sold at 232, but it is not slated for delivery for two weeks.
Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with light to moderate box movement.
NOTE: Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
1-800-369-7675, 1-402-399-6402, or 1-402-462-8897. All sales will be listed
anonymously and organized by state. General trends and summaries from this
data will be posted on the Daily Sales Reported to DTN page.
