DTN COMMENTS:  The country is quiet this afternoon with business essentially 
done for the week, although it is possible that we may see a little bit more 
cleanup trade in Nebraska.

The May 1 on feed report released early today due to the holiday looks 
neutral to friendly with April placement activity turning out to be smaller 
than expected. Actual report totals look like this: on feed 101%, placed in 
April 95%, marketed in April 92%.

Today's kill totaled 109,000 head, 2,000 below last week, and 5,000 smaller 
than a year ago. Saturday's slaughter is estimated at 4,000, bringing the 
weekly total to 566,000 head, 3,000 less than the previous week, and 39,000 
under 2014. Cattle futures closed mixed in the live pit, while the majority 
of feeder contracted ended the day with triple digit gains. Beef cutouts are 
expected to close lower with light to moderate box movement.
