DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning, and it is looking
like the bulk of business is essentially done for the week. Having said
that, a little scattered trade here and there is not out of the question
today. Asking prices for cattle left on showlists are around $137 plus in
the South, and $220 in the North. So far, this week Southern live deals have
been marked at $135 to $138, mostly $136 to $137 steady to $1 lower than
last week's weighted averages. Northern dressed business has been marked at
$217 to $218, mostly $218, fully steady with last week's weighted average
basis Nebraska. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower with light to moderate
