DTN WEEKLY ROUND UP:  Cash cattle business started to develop just before 
the noon hour Friday, and continued throughout the afternoon, with 
Southern live deals marked at mostly $183, $3 higher than the prior week's 
weighted averages. Northern dressed sales had a full range of $283 to $293 
mostly $292, $4 higher than last week's weighted average basis Nebraska. 
According to Thursday's Daily Direct Slaughter Cattle Negotiated Purchase 
Summary reports, weekly accumulated average price totals were as follows, 
(the prior week's weighted averages are listed in parentheses). KS 
$NA($179.86); NE $287.37($287.74); TX $NA($180.11); IA $283.00($285.20); 
CO not available due to confidentiality. Keep in mind the majority of 
business didn't take place until Friday, so the weighted averages listed 
above are not the actual trend for the week. It will be interesting to see 
just where weighted averages fall when the summary reports are released 
later this morning.

The Friday Afternoon Daily Direct Slaughter Cattle report lists week-to-
date trade volume totals as: KS 9,022; NE 11,495; TX 4,150; IA 6,521; CO

DTN MORNING COMMENTS: It looks to be a rather typical Monday with both 
packers and producers busy preparing for the week ahead. Bids and asking 
prices are not established. Significant trade volume will probably be 
delayed until the second half of the week. Beef cutouts are expected to be 
higher with generally light box movement.

data to be accurate but cannot guarantee its specific reliability or whether 
it fairly represents the larger cash market.
