DTN COMMENTS:  Just a few scattered bids on the table at midday by a 
Regional in Eastern Nebraska. The rest of cattle country remains rather 
quiet. Asking prices are around $144 to $145 live in the South, while 
dressed asking prices in the North are around $224 to $225. Significant 
trade volume could develop as early as this afternoon, but tomorrow seems 
more likely.

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction today listed a total of 1,849 (TX 1,386 
head, KS 392 head, CA 71 head head), none of which actually sold, as they 
did not meet the reserve prices, that ranged from $134 to $143.50. Opening 
prices ranged from $132 to $139, high bids ranged from $132.25 to $140

Beef cutouts are lower at midday (choice 267.24 -0.79, select 254.58 -1.10) 
with light to moderate box movement (52.19 lds of choice cuts, 12.50 lds of 
select cuts, 7.18 lds of trim, and 10.68 lds of ground). Cattle futures near 
the noon hour are mostly modestly lower on lice contract, and moderately to 
sharply lower on feeder issues.
