DTN COMMENTS:  A light trade is reported in parts of Nebraska and Kansas at 
midday. Live business in Nebraska appears to be $2.00-3.00 lower than last 
week's weighted average. On the other hand, dressed sales in the North are 
not yet sufficient enough to constitute a test. Live trade in Kansas is 
mostly $1.00 lower than last week. We expect to see more trade volume 
develop through the afternoon with packers probably wanting to complete 
business before the holiday recess. Asking prices seem to be around 147-148 
in the South, and 240+/150 in the North. 

Beef cutouts are significantly higher at midday (Choice 225.40 +1.65, Select 
215.53 +1.06), with light to moderate box movement (53.33 lds of choice 
cuts, 24.28 lds of select cuts, 8.31 lds of trim, and 21.05 lds of ground). 
Cattle futures are significantly lower at midday, pressured by ideas of 
lower cash business, long liquidation, and a general lack of pre-holiday 
buying interest.
