DTN COMMENTS:  The country remains very quiet this afternoon, and we have 
had no luck finding any bids today. Yesterday saw a light trade, with live 
deals ranging from $113 to $112, roughly $7 to $8 lower than last week's 
weighted averages. A very light scattered dressed trade took place at mostly 
$180, about $9 lower than last week's weighted average basis Nebraska. 
Asking prices today are around $114 to $115 in the South, and $183 plus in 
the North. 

Today's slaughter totaled 115,000 head, 8,000 below last week, and 5,000 
smaller than a year ago. Cattle futures closed mostly limit down on both 
live (off 350 to 450) and feeder (off 337 to 675) contracts. Beef cutouts 
are expected to close lower with light to moderate box movement.
