DTN COMMENTS: It is a slow start to the morning following yesterday's
light business. Live trade in the South was generally $171, $3 lower than
last week's weighted averages. Northern dressed sales were reported at
mostly $271, $4 lower than the prior week's weighted average. Yesterday's
Mandatory totals looked somewhat light, so we may see some more deals
today and/or tomorrow. Beef cutouts are expected to be mixed, with light
to moderate box movement.
NOTE: Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
