DTN COMMENTS: Just a few scattered bids are on the table at midday by a 
Regional in Nebraska. Asking prices are around $111 to $112 in the South, 
and $180 in the North. Significant trade volume will likely be delayed until 
Thursday or later. 

Beef cutouts are higher at midday (choice 219.00 +0.98, select 192.36 +0.88) 
with light to moderate box movement (42.98 lds of choice cuts, 18.57 lds of 
select cuts, 12.84 lds of trim, and 22.55 lds of ground). Cattle futures 
near the noon hour are mostly moderately higher on both live and feeder 
contracts.

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction today had a total of 768 head listed with 3 
lots for Kansas, and 1 lot each for Texas and Nebraska. Asking prices were 
at $111, but there were no takers again this week.
