DTN COMMENTS: A few scattered deals are on the table this morning in parts
of Kansas at $115, about $1 lower than last week's weighted average. Asking
prices are starting out around $118 to $119 on a live basis, and $188 plus
dressed. If the trend of the last several weeks continues we may see some
business develop today. Having said that, it is possible that significant
trade volume may be delayed until Thursday or later. Beef cutouts are
expected to be lower 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. All sales will be listed anonymously and
organized by state. All live sales are FOB and set for 1-9 day delivery.
General trends and summaries from this data will also be posted on the Daily
Sales Reported to DTN page.
