DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning, and bids remain
few and far between, but packer inquiry should improve as the day
progresses. Asking prices are around $121 to $122 in the South, and $190 to
$193 in the North. Having said that, it is very possible that significant
trade volume could be delayed until sometime Friday. 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, ext. 3678. 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
