DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning following the last three
days of light trade. Southern live deals have had a full range of $117.50 to
$119, while Northern dressed business has had a range of $187 to $192. It
looks like the bulk of trading is essentially done for the week, although we
may see a little cleanup through out the day. Asking prices for cattle left
on showlists are around $119 plus in the South, and $191 plus in the North.
Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with light to moderate box movement.

Sales Reported to DTN page.
