DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning following 
yesterday's light to moderate business. At this point no bids have been 
renewed, and asking prices for cattle left on showlists are around $168-plus 
live in the South, and $273-plus dressed in the North. While it looks as if 
the bulk of trading is essentially done for the week, a little cleanup here 
and there is very possible. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower with light 
to moderate box movement. 

So far this week, the majority of Southern live deals have been marked at 
mostly $167, $4 higher than last week's weighted averages. Dressed sales in 
the North were at mostly $270 to $272, $5 to $6 higher than last week's 
weighted averages, Northern live transactions were at $168 to $172, $3 to $7 
higher than last week's weighted averages, basis Nebraska.
