DTN COMMENTS:  A light trade has developed in Eastern Nebraska at $230, 
about $1 higher than last week's weighted average. A few bids are now on the 
table in South but so far, those bids are being passed. Asking prices are 
around $145 in the South, and $233 to $235-plus in the North.

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction held today reported 08 lots (6 lots in TX and 
1 lot each in NE & KS), totaling 1,557 head of cattle. Opening prices were at 
$141 to $142, high bids had a range of $141.50 to $144.25, reserve prices 
were $143 to $145. Only 1 lot sold, 201 head in Nebraska at $144.25.

Today's slaughter totaled 128,000 head, 1,000 more than last week, and 7,000 
greater than a year ago. Cattle futures closed modestly to moderately higher 
on live contracts, up 15 to 67. Feeder issues ended the day mostly sharply 
higher, up 57 to 212. Beef cutouts are expected to close lower with very 
good box movement.
