DTN COMMENTS: The country remains quiet this afternoon with still just a
few bids on the table. Asking prices are around 121.00-122.00 in the South,
and 190.00 plus in the North. Significant trade volume will be delayed until
Thursday or later.

Today's slaughter totaled 120,000 head, even with both a week and year ago.
Cattle futures closed modestly higher on both live (up 17 to 75) and feeder
(up 27 to 42) issues. Beef cutouts are expected to be mixed with light to
moderate box movement.

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction listed 156 head today all for Kansas and all
set for 1-9 day delivery. 97 head actually sold at 119.00, 59 head were
unsold.
