DTN COMMENTS: We are off to a slow start this morning with asking prices
around $144 to $145 live in the South, but dressed prices are not fully
established in the North. Significant trade volume could develop as early as
today, but tomorrow seems more likely. 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, ext. 3678. 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.
