DTN COMMENTS: Light to moderate trading has taken place in the South today 
at $144, $1 higher than both last week's weighted average and yesterday's 
deals. Some asking prices remain firm around $145 in the South, and $233-
plus in the North. 

A light trade was reported yesterday with dressed deals in Nebraska and Iowa 
at mostly $230, about $1 higher than last week's weighted averages. Live 
deals in Texas were at $143, fully steady with last week's weighted average.

Today's slaughter totaled 127,000 head, even with last week, but 6,000 head 
greater than a year ago. Cattle futures closed mixed, mostly modestly lower 
on live contracts, off 17 to up 65, while feeder issues ended the day mostly 
moderately lower, off 90 to up 37. Beef cutouts are expected to close mixed 
with moderate to good box movement.
