DTN COMMENTS:  The country is quiet this morning with some early asking 
prices around $175 in the South, and $275 in the North. No bids have been 
renewed at this point. Significant trade volume could be delayed for at 
least one more day. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower, with light to 
moderate box movement. 

So far this week, some scattered live deals have been reported in parts of 
the South at $171, $3 lower than last week's weighted averages. A handful 
of dressed business has been reported in parts of Nebraska at $271, $4 
lower than the prior week's weighted average. Keep in mind that this has 
been early and very light trade, so it is not necessarily setting the 
trend for the week.

NOTE: Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
1-402-461-3561. All sales will be listed anonymously and organized by 
state. All live sales are FOB and set for 1-9-day delivery. A weekly 
summary from this data will be posted on the Weekly Cattle Sales Reported 
to DTN page and will be left up for the entire week for reference
