DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning following light to moderate
trading on Wednesday and Thursday. The bulk of business is essentially done
for the week, although a little cleanup here and there is not out of the
question today. Asking prices for cattle left on showlists are around $140 in
the South, and $236-plus in the North. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower
with light to moderate box movement.
This week Southern live business was marked at mostly $138, steady to
roughly $1 lower than last week's weighted averages. Northern dressed deals
were marked at mostly $234, not quite $1 lower than last week's weighted
average. Colorado's live sales were at $145, about steady with last week's
