DTN COMMENTS: Just a few scattered bids in Texas to start this morning out.
The rest of cattle country is quiet so far, but we expect that to change
over the next several hours. A moderately active trade took place in the
North yesterday at 168.00-170.00, mostly 170.00, $5.00 lower than last
week's weighted average basis Nebraska. They should need to move more cattle
in that area today. Asking prices are around 112.00-114.00 in the South, and
172.00 plus in the North. 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, or 1-402-462-8897. All sales will be listed
anonymously and organized by state. General trends and summaries from this
data will be posted on the Daily Sales Reported to DTN page.
