DTN COMMENTS: The country is very quiet this morning, bids are scarce,
asking prices for cattle left on showlists are around $124 plus in the
South, and $200 plus in the North. Having said all of that, the bulk of
trade is essentially completed for the week, although we may see a few deals
here and there throughout the day. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower
with light to moderate box movement.
So far this week, Southern live deals have been marked at $123 to $125,
mostly $123 to $124, steady with last week's weighted averages. Northern
dressed deals have been marked at $196 to $200, mostly $200, $1 lower than
last week's weighted average basis Nebraska.
