DTN COMMENTS:  While we have a few scattered bids on the table this 
afternoon, it is looking like significant business could essentially be done 
for the week. Dressed deals in the North have had a full range of $182 to 
$185, mostly $183, and Southern live business was marked at $111. Asking 
prices on cattle left on showlists are around $112 to $113 in the South, and 
$185 plus in the North. 

Today's slaughter totaled 118,000 head, 2,000 more than last week, but 2,000 
less than a year ago. Saturday's kill is estimated at 52,000 head, bringing 
the weekly total to 651,000 head, 4,000 below the prior week, but 16,000 
greater than a 2018. Both live and feeder cattle futures closed modestly to 
moderately higher (live up 20 to 77; feeders up 30 to 62). Beef cutouts are 
expected to close higher with light to moderate box movement.
