DTN COMMENTS:  Light trade is developing in parts of Nebraska this afternoon 
at 245.00 dressed, about $4.00 lower than last week's weighted average. More 
general buying interest remains slow in developing. Yet we expect light to 
moderate business to develop in most areas over the next several hours. 
Asking prices would appear to be around 163.00 plus in the South and 250.00 
plus in the North. 

Today's slaughter totaled 106,000 head, 7,000 smaller than last week, and 
16,000 below a year ago. Saturday's kill is estimated at 9,000, bringing the 
weekly total to 571,000 head, 21,000 fewer than the previous week, and 
60,000 less than 2013. Cattle futures closed mostly higher with feeders out 
performing live contracts. Beef cutouts are expected to close lower with 
light to moderate box movement.
