DTN COMMENTS:  A very light trade has been reported in parts of Western 
Nebraska at $120 and in Kansas at $119, but the rest of cattle country 
remains relatively quiet this afternoon. Asking prices are around $120 plus 
in the South, and $192 plus in the North. A light to moderate trade has 
taken place this week with Southern live deals marked at $119 to $120, while 
Northern dressed trade has been at mostly $191. Trade volume totals still 
look rather light in most areas, so more business should need to take place 
today and/or tomorrow. 

Today's slaughter totaled 118,000 head, 3,000 more than last week, and 
24,000 greater than a year ago. Cattle futures closed sharply lower on live 
contracts, off 195 to 300, and mostly moderately lower on feeder issues, the 
lone exception being the spot May contract which ended the day 70 higher, 
off 87 to up 70. Beef cutouts are expected to close mixed with moderate box 
movement.
