DTN COMMENTS:  A light scattered trade has been reported in parts of Texas 
and Nebraska at $119 to $120, Some asking prices remain firm around $120 to 
$122 in the South, and $193 in the North. 

A light to moderate dressed trade took place in the North yesterday at 
mostly $191, generally $2 higher than last week's weighted average basis 
Nebraska. Only a handful of cattle traded in the South. 

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction today listed a total of 2,749 head, of which 
1,458 actually sold, 82 head were scratched from the auction, and 1,209 head 
were listed as unsold, as they did not meet the reserve prices, that ranged 
from $118.25 to $120. Opening prices ranged from $117.50 to $119, high bids 
ranged from $118.50 to $120.25. The state by state breakdown looks like this: 
TX 1,712 total head, with 82 head scratched from the auction, and 1,158 head 
sold at $119.25-$120.25, 472 head unsold; NE 783 total head, with 232 head 
sold at $120, 551 head unsold; KS 254 total head, with 68 head sold at 
$120.00, 186 head unsold; 

Today's slaughter totaled 118,000 head, 2,000 below last week, but 23,000 
greater than a year ago. Cattle futures closed mixed on live contracts, up 
90 to off 22m while feeder issues ended the day sharply higher, up 142 to 
220. Beef cutouts are expected to close higher with light to moderate box
