DTN COMMENTS:  Just a few scattered bids are on the table at midday, but the 
majority of cattle country remains quiet. A light to moderate trade took 
place in most areas yesterday. Northern dressed trade ranged from $185 to 
$187, mostly $187, roughly $3 lower than last week's weighted average basis 
Nebraska. Southern live deals were at $115, generally $5 lower than the 
prior week's weighted averages. Asking prices for cattle left on showlists 
are around $117 plus in the South, and $187 plus in the North. 

Beef cutouts are lower at midday (choice 206.32 -1.15, select 199.02 -0.88), 
with moderate box movement (73.25 lds of choice cuts, 17.15 lds of select 
cuts, 5.71 lds of trim, and 7.37 lds of ground). Cattle futures near the top 
of the noon hour are mixed on live contracts with deferred faring better 
than nearbys, and moderately to sharply higher on feeder contracts. 

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction reported a total of 755 head, of which 627 
head sold today. There was a total of five lots, one in Texas and four in 
Kansas. Only one lot in Kansas did not sell. All started with $115 asking 
prices and those that sold went for $115.25, most lots were set for 1-9 day 
delivery, and one lot in Kansas is set for 1-17 day delivery.
