DTN COMMENTS: All is quiet in the country at midday, following the last two 
days of light to moderate business. Asking prices for cattle left on 
showlists are around $140-plus in the South, and $230-plus in the North. 
Having said that, it looks like the bulk of trading is essentially done for 
the week, but a little cleanup here and there is not out of the question. 

So far this week, live deals in Kansas and Texas have been marked at mostly 
$140, roughly $3.50 to $4.50 higher than last week's weighted averages. 
Dresses transactions in Nebraska and Iowa have been at mostly $229 to $230, 
about $2 to $3 higher than last week's weighted average basis Nebraska.

Beef cutouts at midday are higher (choice 263.32 +0.22, select 239.80 +2.34) 
with light to moderate box movement (23.26 lds of choice cuts, 7.48 lds of 
select cuts, 7.71 lds of trim, and 10.77 lds of ground). Cattle futures near 
the top of the noon hour are mixed, moderately higher to modestly lower. 
While feeder issues are mostly modestly to moderately lower.
