DTN COMMENTS:  Cattle country remains quiet this afternoon with both bids 
and asking prices poorly defined. That should begin to change at midweek, 
although we wouldn't be surprised if significant trade volume is delayed 
until Friday once again. After all, both sides have something to crow about. 
On one hand processing margins are quite attractive. On the other hand, fed 
supplies seem manageable and futures remain largely stable. 

Today's slaughter totaled 119,000 head, even with last week, but 1,000 more 
than a year ago. Cattle futures closed mixed in the live market and 
moderately lower in the feeder trade. Beef cutouts are expected to close 
mixed, with light-to-moderate box movement.
