DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet so far with just a few scattered bids on 
the table in Kansas. The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction is scheduled to take 
place later this morning and we expect that packer inquiry will start to 
improve afterwards. Having said that, significant trade volume may be 
delayed until later in the week. A few asking prices are said to be around 
113.00-114.00 in the South, and 178.00-180.00 in the North. Beef cutouts are 
expected to be lower with light to moderate box movement.

NOTE:  Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
1-800-369-7675, 1-402-399-6402, or 1-402-462-8897. All sales will be listed 
anonymously and organized by state. All live sales are FOB and set for 1-9 
day delivery. General trends and summaries from this data will also be 
posted on the Daily Sales Reported to DTN page.
