DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning, following a light 
to moderate trade in the South yesterday. Most sales ranged from 121.00-
122.00, roughly $4.00 higher than last week's weighted averages. It looks 
like business may be done for the week in that area. The North only had some 
scattered sales and will need to move more cattle today. Having said that it 
is possible that they may wait until after the on feed report is released 
later this afternoon. Asking prices on cattle left on showlists are around 
124.00 live and 195.00 plus dressed. 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, 1-402-399-6402, or 1-402-462-8897. 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 Sales Reported to DTN page.
