DTN COMMENTS:  The country is very quiet at midday and it is looking like 
the bulk of trading is essentially done for the week, a few deals will 
likely be reported here and there today and tomorrow. Asking prices for 
cattle left on showlists are around $125 in the South, and $200 in the 
North. 

A light to moderate trade took place yesterday with dressed deals in the 
North showing a wide range of $193 to $198, mostly $198, about $1 lower than 
last week's weighted average basis Nebraska. Southern live business was at 
$123 to $124, generally steady with last week's weighted averages. 

Beef cutouts are lower at midday (choice 307.40 -0.43, select 274.81 -0.69) 
with light to moderate box movement (27.57 lds of choice cuts, 8.32 lds of 
select cuts, 3.85 lds of trim, and 12.00 lds of ground). Cattle futures at 
the top of the noon hour are mostly modestly to moderately higher on both 
live and feeder contracts.
