DTN COMMENTS:  A scattered dressed trade is being reported in parts of the 
North this afternoon, at mostly $247, $2 lower than last week's weighted 
averages. So far, the South remains very quiet. Asking prices are around 
$156 to $157 in the South and $250-plus in the North.

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction held today reported 8 lots (6 lots in TX and 2 
lots in CO), totaling 1,023 head of cattle, none of which sold. Opening prices 
were at $153, high bids had a range of $153 to $153.50, but none of these bids 
met reserve prices of $155 to $156.

Today's slaughter totaled 127,000 head, 1,000 below last week, but 7,000 
greater than a year ago. Cattle futures ended the day mixed, mostly modestly 
higher on live contracts, up 55 to off 12, while feeder issues were mostly 
moderately lower, off 25 to 90. Beef cutouts are expected to close higher 
with very good box movement.
