DTN COMMENTS:  The country is quiet this morning, with both buyers and 
sellers busy taking inventory. Bids and asking prices have yet to be 
established. Last week's trade took place mostly late Friday afternoon 
with Southern live sales at 159.00, mostly $1.00 lower than the previous 
week, while Northern dressed business was generally steady with the bulk 
of last week's trade at 254.00. While last week's trade volume totals look 
minimal, we don't expect to see any significant trade develop before 
Wednesday this week. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with generally 
light box movement.

NOTE:  The price and volume information listed on this page is supplied by 
DTN subscribers in the interest of general cash market awareness.  All 
cattle feeding subscribers are encouraged to report sales in a timely 
fashion in order to compensate for the systematic delays of mandatory 
reporting. While all transactions will be posted on an anonymous basis, 
callers are required to identify themselves and the location of the actual 
sales.  DTN believes this data to be accurate, but cannot guarantee its 
specific reliability or whether it fairly represents the larger cash 
market.

Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at 1-800-369-
7675, 1-402-399-6402, or 1-402-462-8897. All sales will be listed 
anonymously and organized by state.  General trends and summaries from 
this data will be posted on the Daily Sales Reported to DTN page.
