DTN COMMENTS:  A light to moderate trade has developed in most areas this 
afternoon with Northern dressed deals fully steady with last week's weighted 
average basis Nebraska. Southern live trade is at 111.00, also fully steady 
with last week's weighted average. We look for trade volume totals to 
continue to grow over the rest of the afternoon.

The October 1 on feed report released this afternoon was somewhat negative, 
especially in terms of larger than expected September placement activity: on 
feed 105%; placed in September 113%; marketed in September 103%.

Today's kill totaled 112,000 head, 7,000 more than last week, and 10,000 
greater than a year ago. Saturday's slaughter is estimated at 58,000, 
bringing the weekly total to 632,000 head, 10,000 above the previous week, 
and 30,000 more than 2016. Cattle futures closed higher on both live and 
feeder contracts  (live up 20-85, feeders up 12-82. Beef cutouts are 
expected to close higher, on light to moderate box movement.
