DTN COMMENTS: Some bids are being noted in parts of the North this morning
following yesterday's moderate trade in the South at $126, $2 higher than
the prior week's weighted average. Although we may see a little cleanup
trade, it is possible that business is essentially done for the week in
Kansas and Texas. Asking prices are around $128 to $130 on a live basis and
$208 plus dressed. Beef cutouts are expected to be mixed with light to
moderate box movement.
NOTE: Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
1-800-369-7675, 1-402-399-6402. All sales will be listed anonymously and
organized by state. All live sales are FOB and set for 1-9 day delivery.
