DTN COMMENTS:  All remains quiet in the country this afternoon with just a 
few bids renewed in parts of Nebraska. Asking prices for cattle left on 
showlists are around $122 in the South and $198 plus in the North. While we 
may see a little clean up this afternoon, it looks like the bulk of business 
is done for the week.

A light trade was reported yesterday in the South with live deals at mostly 
$120 to $121, steady to $1 higher than last week's weighted averages. 
Northern business was light to moderate, with dressed trade marked at mostly 
$196, roughly $1 higher than last week's weighted average basis Nebraska. 

Today's slaughter totaled 113,000 head, 2,000 more than last week, and 
27,000 greater than a year ago. Saturday's kill is estimated at 70,000 head, 
bringing the weekly total to 640,000 head, 1,000 less than last week, but 
154,000 above 2020. Cattle futures closed mostly moderately lower on live 
contracts, off 42 to 87, while feeders ended the day moderately to sharply 
lower, off 30 to 105. Beef cutouts are expected to close higher with light 
to moderate box movement.
