DTN COMMENTS:  The standoff continues in the country this morning, so far, 
just a few bids have been renewed in parts of Texas, but those bids continue 
to be passed. Asking prices are around $143 to $145 in the South, and $240-
plus in the North. Packer inquiry should improve over the next several 
hours, as we are hearing that a major player in Nebraska has pulled some 
cattle that were set for shipment next week into this week. Beef cutouts are 
expected to be lower with light to moderate box movement.

NOTE:  Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
1-800-369-7675, ext. 3678. All sales will be listed anonymously and 
organized by state. All live sales are FOB and set for 1-9-day delivery. A 
weekly summary from this data will be posted on the Weekly Cattle Sales 
Reported to DTN page.
