DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning following moderate to active 
trade in the North yesterday with dressed deals at mostly $204 to $205, $3 
to $4 lower than last week's weighted average basis Nebraska. Southern trade 
took place on Wednesday at $125 to $127, mostly $126 to $127, steady to $1 
higher than the prior week's weighted averages. Although it is possible that 
we may see a little cleanup trade in the North today, it is looking like 
business in the South is essentially done for the week. Asking prices for 
cattle still on showlists are around $128 to $129 on a live basis, and $206 
to $207 dressed. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower, with light to 
moderate box movement.

NOTE:  Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
1-800-369-7675, 1-402-399-6402. All sales will be listed anonymously and 
organized by state. All live sales are FOB and set for 1-9 day delivery. 
General trends and summaries from this data will also be posted on the Daily 
Sales Reported to DTN page.
