DTN COMMENTS:  Feedlot country remains quiet this afternoon with both sides 
impressed by the mid-week explosion in cattle futures. Short bought packers 
no doubt wonder if growing board premiums will make this week's procurement 
chores even more difficult. We can only assume that asking prices continue 
to firm based upon new bullishness at the CME. We've heard some asking 
prices around 165.00 plus in the South and 255.00-260.00 in the North. 
Significant business could easily be delayed until sometime Friday. 

Today's kill totaled 114,000 head, even with last week, but 6,000 smaller 
than a year ago. Live and feeder cattle futures once again blasted to new 
all-time highs supported by technical buying and general cash optimism. 
Beef cutouts are expected to close higher with moderate box movement.
