DTN COMMENTS:  Still only a few deals reported in parts of Kansas and Texas 
this afternoon, at fully steady money with yesterday's business. Some asking 
prices remain firm around $105 to $107 on a live basis and $170 plus 
dressed. It is looking like the North will wait until Friday to move more 
cattle.

Light to moderate business took place in the South yesterday with a range of 
$103 to $105, mostly $104, $4 higher than last week's weighted averages. The 
North remained rather quiet with just a little scattered trade reported. 

Today's slaughter totaled 118,000 head, even with last week, but 1,000 more 
than a year ago. Cattle futures closed mixed on live contracts, up 70 to off 
22, while feeders ended the day mostly lower off 62 to up 5. Beef cutouts 
are expected to close higher with moderate to good box movement.
