DTN COMMENTS:  Cattle country remains quiet this afternoon with bids and 
asking prices poorly defined. Today's rebound in live and feeder futures 
should work to support the bullish resolve of feedlot managers in terms of 
pricing cattle. If this proves to be the case, we probably won't see much 
cash action until sometime Friday. 
 
Today's kill totaled 118,000 head, 1,000 below last week, but even with a 
year ago. Cattle futures closed with strong gains, supported by short-
covering, higher cutouts, and general cash optimism. Beef cutouts are 
expected to close higher with moderate to good box movement.

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction today listed a total of 3,194 head, with 0 
actually sold, 2,966 head listed as unsold, and 228 head listed as PO (Passed 
Offer). The state by state breakdown looks like this: KS 365 total head, with 
0 head sold, 137 head unsold, 228 head listed as PO ($120.25-$121.00); NE 
2,829 total head, with 0 head, 2,829 head unsold, and 0 head listed as PO; TX 
- no cattle reported; CO - no cattle reported; IA - no cattle reported; other 
states (OK, SD, MN) - no cattle reported. The delivery date/weighted averages 
breakdown is as listed: 1-9 day delivery: 3,194 head total, 0 head sold; 1-17 
day delivery - no cattle reported; 10-17 day delivery - no cattle reported; 
17-30 day delivery - no cattle reported.
