DTN COMMENTS:  The country is fairly quiet at midday with just some 
scattered bids on the table. Southern asking prices are around 119.00-
120.00, no confirmed asking prices have been reported in the North, but we 
suspect that they may start out around 190.00. Significant trade volume will 
likely be delayed until sometime Thursday or Friday. 

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction today listed a total of 704 head, with 75 
actually sold, 246 head listed as unsold, and 383 head listed as PO (Passed

75 head sold at $116.00, 59 head unsold, 184 head listed as PO ($116.00); NE

265 total head, with 0 head sold, 66 head unsold, and 199 head listed as PO 
($116.00); CO - no cattle reported; IA - no cattle reported; other states - no

9 day delivery: 704 head total, 75 head sold, with a weighted average price of 
$116.00; 1-17 day delivery - no cattle reported; 10-17 day delivery - no

Beef cutouts are lower at midday, especially on choice products (Choice 
203.01 -1.05, Select 185.81 -0.11) with light to moderate box movement 
(66.95 lds of choice cuts, 17.50 lds of select cuts, 10.83 lds of trim, and 
9.94 lds of ground). Cattle futures are lower at midday with triple digit
