DTN COMMENTS:  A light trade is being reported in parts of the North near 
midday with dressed deals at $208, $3 higher than last week's weighted 
average, some live business in Nebraska is at $129 to $130, mostly $130, 
also $3 higher than last week's weighted average. More significant trade 
volume totals should develop as the day progresses. A moderate trade took 
place in the South yesterday at $126, $2 higher than the prior week's 
weighted average. Although we may see a little cleanup trade, it is possible 
that business is essentially done for the week in Kansas and Texas.

Beef cutouts are mixed at midday (choice 233.21 +0.45, select 219.51 -0.65) 
with light to moderate box movement (27.09 lds of choice cuts, 14.28 lds of 
select cuts, 4.38 lds of trim, and 8.39 lds of ground). Cattle futures near 
midday are mostly lower on live contracts (only spot April is higher at this 
time) and mixed on feeder issues.
