DTN COMMENTS: The cash market is naturally untested at midday as packers and 
feedlot managers complete the distribution of new showlists.  It looks like the 
pre-holiday offerings is generally smaller with only Nebraska showing more 
ready steers and heifers. 

Beef cut-outs at midday are significantly higher, up $1.31 (select: $184.56) to 
$1.36 (choice: $203.23) with tight box movement (ch: 27 lds; sel: 19 lds; trim: 
6 lds; ground beef: 6 lds). Reversing from early session strength, most cattle 
futures are moderately lower at midday with only spot Dec holding higher 
grounds thanks to feedlot strength on display Friday. 

For the weekending December 09, 2017, Imported Beef Passed for Entry in the 
U.S.  totaled 36,066,  91.68% of the previous week and 101.70% of the prior 4 
week average.
