DTN COMMENTS:  The country remains very quiet at midday following 
yesterday's light to moderate business. Asking prices for cattle left on 
showlists are around $126 plus in the South, and $198 plus in the North. So 
far this week, Southern live deals have been marked at mostly $124, while 
Northern dressed trade came in at mostly $196, both fully steady with the 
prior week's weighted averages. 

The Special Fed Cattle Exchange Auction held today listed a total of 2,430 
head (TX 1,284 head; KS 756 head; NE 138 head; SD 252 head), of which none 
actually sold. Reserve prices ranged from $121 to $126. Opening prices ranged 
from $119 to $122, high bids ranged from $121 to $124.25.

Beef cutouts are higher at midday (choice 280.47 +0.44, select 263.81 +1.01) 
with moderate box movement (36.95 lds of choice cuts, 12.30 lds of select 
cuts, 5.39 lds of trim, and 16.60 lds of ground). Cattle futures near the 
noon hour are moderately to sharply lower on live contracts and mixed, 
mostly moderately lower in feeder issues.
