DTN COMMENTS: A light trade has developed in the North at mostly $228 with a 
few up to $231 $1 lower to $2 higher than last week's weighted average. 
Asking prices are around $144 to $145 in the South, and $231-plus in the 
North. A light test was reported in Kansas and Texas yesterday at $143, 
fully steady with last week's weighted averages.

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction held today reported 7 lots (6 lots in TX and 1 
lot in KS), totaling 1,077 head of cattle, none of which sold. Opening prices 
were at $141, high bids had a range of $141 to $143, but none of these bids met 
reserve prices of $143 to $144.

Today's slaughter totaled 127,000 head, even with last week, but 9,000 
greater than a year ago. Live cattle futures closed mostly moderately lower, 
off 2 to 67, while feeder issues ended the day moderately to sharply lower 
off 32 to 112. Beef cutouts are expected to close mixed with very good box 
movement.
