DTN COMMENTS: A light to moderate trade has developed in most areas this 
afternoon. Live deals in the South are at $119, generally steady with last 
week's weighted averages. Dressed deals in the North are at $188, roughly $1 
higher than last week's weighted average basis Nebraska.

Today's slaughter totaled 121,000 head, even with last week, but 3,000 above 
last year. Saturday's kill is estimated at 50,000 head, bringing the weekly 
total to 654,000 head, 13,000 below the previous week, but 26,000 greater 
than 217. Cattle futures closed lower on both live and feeder issues, the 
lone exception was spot December live which ended the day up 12. Beef 
cutouts are expected to close higher, with light to moderate box movement.
