DTN COMMENTS: Just a few scattered bids have been renewed in parts of
Nebraska this morning, following a very light trade in parts of the North
with dressed deals ranging from 170.00-174.00, but this business was not
enough to establish any kind of an accurate trend for the week. So far today
asking prices are still rather sketchy, but we are hearing that some steers
and heifers are priced around 114.00 in parts of Texas. Significant trade
volume could be delayed until sometime Thursday or later. Beef cutouts are
expected to be mixed with light to moderate box movement.
The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction today listed a total of 1,103 head (152 head
in Kansas, and 997 head in Nebraska). No cattle actually sold. Asking prices
ranged from 111.00 to 113.00.
NOTE: Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
