DTN COMMENTS:  The country is quiet this morning, with both buyers and 
sellers busy taking inventory. Bids and asking prices have yet to be 
established. The majority of last week's Southern business took place on 
Wednesday with prices mostly $3.00 lower than the previous week at 158.00. 
A light trade took place in the North on Wednesday as well as on Friday, 
with a wide range on dressed prices 252.00-260.00. It will be interesting 
to see just where the weighted average will fall when the summary reports 
are released later this morning. We don't expect to see any significant 
business develop before Wednesday this week. Beef cutouts are expected to 
be lower with generally light box movement.

NOTE:  The price and volume information listed on this page is supplied by 
DTN subscribers in the interest of general cash market awareness.  All 
cattle feeding subscribers are encouraged to report sales in a timely 
fashion in order to compensate for the systematic delays of mandatory 
reporting. While all transactions will be posted on an anonymous basis, 
callers are required to identify themselves and the location of the actual 
sales.  DTN believes this data to be accurate, but cannot guarantee its 
specific reliability or whether it fairly represents the larger cash 
market.

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.
