DTN COMMENTS:  Formula totals for last week were mixed, smaller in Kansas, 
but larger in Nebraska and Texas: KS 68,406(-1,193); NE 52,412(+4,315); TX 
83,677 (+1,959). Publication of weekly trade volume summaries have been 
delayed by the USDA. We will get that information out as soon as it 
becomes available. New showlists appear to be generally smaller than last 
week, especially in Kansas. Some showlists have been initially priced 
around 161.00 in the South, and 263.00 in the North. 

Beef cutouts are lower at midday (Choice 256.73 -.26, Select 247.41 
-.21) with light to moderate box movement (60.16 lds of choice cuts, 15.51 
lds of select, 3.81 lds of trim, and 22.26 lds of ground). Live and feeder 
contracts are on the defensive near the noon hour, pressured by long 
liquidation and beef demand worries.

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.
