DTN COMMENTS: We are picking up a few deals in the North this morning,
following yesterday's light to moderate trade, with prices at mostly 170.00,
$6.00 higher than the previous week. Best early guesses are that just over
1,000 head moved in Texas, 4,000-5,000 in Kansas, and 5,000-10,000 in
Nebraska. It sounds like business is done for the week in the South. But we
should see more trade in Nebraska since no dressed deals took place
yesterday. Asking prices on cattle left on lists in the North are around
267.00 plus. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower with light to moderate
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.
