DTN COMMENTS: Only a few scattered deals have been reported in parts of 
Texas this afternoon, at $154, $1 lower than the prior week's weighted 
averages. Some asking prices remain firm around $156 to $157 in the South, 
and $249-plus in the North. The rest of cattle country is rather quiet 
following a light to moderate trade in Nebraska and Iowa yesterday with 
dressed deals marked at mostly $247, $2 lower than the previous week's 
weighted averages. 

Today's slaughter totaled 126,000 head, 2,000 below last week, but 4,000 
more than a year ago. Cattle futures closed modestly to moderately higher, 
up 10 to 57, while feeder contracts ended the day sharply higher, up 115 to 
257. Beef cutouts are expected to close mixed, with moderate box movement.
