DTN COMMENTS: The country is very quiet this morning with business 
essentially completed for the week, although a little cleanup here and there 
is possible. Asking prices for cattle left on showlists are around $140 in 
the South, and $228 in the North. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with 
light to moderate box movement.

This week Southern live trade has had a range of $136 to $138, mostly $138, 
$2 lower than last week's weighted averages. Northern dressed deals have had 
a range of $223 to $228, mostly $226, $3 lower than last week's weighted 
average basis Nebraska.
