DTN COMMENTS: A few deals have been reported in Western Nebraska, and a few 
bids are now on the table in parts of Kansas. Packer inquiry should continue 
to improve as the day progresses. Asking prices are around $122 plus in the 
South, and $200 plus in the North. 

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction today listed a total of 7,773 head, of which 
1,085 actually sold, 181 were scratched from the auction and 6,507 head were 
listed as unsold, as they did not meet the reserve prices, that ranged from 
$119 to $123. Opening prices ranged from $115 to $118, high bids ranged from 
$116 to $120. The state-by-state breakdown looks like this: TX 7,463 total 
head, with 1,085 head sold at $119 to $120, 6,197 head unsold and 181 were 
scratched from the auction; KS 310 total head, all of which went unsold. 

Today's slaughter totaled 120,000 head 3,000 more than last week, and 1,000 
above a year ago. Cattle futures closed mixed, live contracts were mostly 
modestly higher, up 15 to off 10, while feeder issues ended the day mostly 
moderately lower, off 55 to up 25. Beef cutouts are expected to close higher 
with moderate box movement.
