DTN COMMENTS:  Trade volume remains generally light this afternoon with 
feedlots resisting lower packer bids. While dressed sales in the North are 
about steady with last week. Live business in both the North and South 
appears to be about $2.00 lower. Asking prices are around 170.00 
in the South and 268.00-270.00 in the North. We will either see more 
business develop this afternoon or packers will start out next week 
extremely close to the knife. 

Today's kill totaled 99,000 head, 7,000 below last week, and 17,000 smaller 
than a year ago. Saturday's slaughter is estimated at 15,000, bringing the 
weekly total to 553,000 head, 23,000 less than the previous week, and 70,000 
under 2013. Cattle futures closed generally lower with particular selling 
pressure evident in October through February live. Beef cutouts are expected 
to close lower with generally light box movement.
