DTN COMMENTS: The country is fairly quiet this afternoon, we have heard of 
some deals that were made in Kansas today at $136. Asking prices for cattle 
left on showlists are around $137 plus in the South, and $219 plus in the 
North. A little more scattered trade here and there is possible today and/or 
tomorrow. Today's slaughter totaled 118,000 head, 2,000 more than last week, 
but 3,000 less than a year ago. Cattle futures closed mostly moderately 
lower on live contracts, off 62 to up 20, and mostly moderately to sharply 
lower on feeder issues, off 130 to up 20. 

So far, this week Southern live deals have been marked at $136 to $138, 
mostly $136 to $137 steady to $1 lower than last week's weighted averages. 
Northern dressed transactions have been marked at $218, also fully steady 
with the prior week, basis Nebraska.

The Special Fed Cattle Exchange Auction held today listed a total of 2,686 
head, of which 489 actually sold, 203 were scratched from the auction and 
1,994 head were listed as unsold, as they did not meet the reserve prices, 
that ranged from $137.50 to $138.50. Opening prices ranged from $125 to $135, 
high bids ranged from $128 to $137.50. The state-by-state breakdown looks like 
this: TX - 1,025 total head, all of which went unsold; KS - 1,182 total head, 
with 454 head sold at $136 to $136.25, 728 head went unsold; IA - 203 total 
head, all of which were scratched from the auction; OK - 121 total head, all 
of which went unsold; CA - 35 total head, which sold at $128; NE - 120 total 
head, all of which went unsold.
