DTN COMMENTS: A light trade is being reported in parts of the North with 
dressed deals marked at $229, roughly $2 higher than last week's weighted 
average. Asking prices remain firm around $138 to $140 in the South, and 
$230 to $232 in the North. It is possible that significant trade volume in 
the South could be delayed until late this afternoon and/or Thursday, since 
not even a token bid has been put on the table in that area. 

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction held today reported 7 lots, totaling 1,035 head 
of cattle, none of which sold. Opening Prices were at $134, reserve prices 
ranged from $136 to $138, with high bids ranging from $134 to $136.25. 

Today's slaughter totaled 126,000 head, 2,000 more than last week, and 
10,000 greater than a year ago. Cattle futures rallied in the last hour of 
trade to close moderately to sharply higher on live contracts, up 57 to 130, 
and sharply higher on feeder issues, up 122 to 250. Beef cutouts are 
expected to close lower with moderate to good box movement.
