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
