DTN COMMENTS:  We are picking up a light to moderate trade in parts of 
Nebraska and Iowa at midday, at 175.00, fully steady with last week's 
weighted average, but some continue to hold out for higher money. It is 
possible that significant trade volume could be delayed until after the on 
feed report is released today at 2:00 p.m. CDT. Asking prices are around 
112.00-113.00 in the South and 176.00-177.00 plus in the North. 

Beef cutouts are higher at midday (Choice 200.06 +0.49, Select 191.21 
+0.45), on light to moderate box movement (33.49 lds of choice cuts, 11.32 
lds of select cuts, 9.54 lds of trim, and 15.66 lds of ground). Cattle 
futures at midmorning are mixed in the live trade (up 35 to off 45), but 
lower/sharply lower on feeder contracts (off 40-130).
