DTN COMMENTS: Packer inquiry is light so far this morning with just a few bids 
evident in parts of the North.  Given business no better than light to moderate
on Wednesday (e.g., negotiated sales in Nebraska probably totaled no more than 
10,000-12,000 head with dressed sales ranging from $266-267; around 15,000 in 
Kansas at $173), we assume that more traffic will have to surface sometime 
today.  Asking prices are around $173-174 in the South and $268-270 in the 
North.
     Cattle futures are mixed in the opening hour of business with light trade 
volume.  Pit trades closes early today (i.e., 12:00 CST) due to the holiday.  
Beef cut-outs are expected to be higher with light box movement.

NOTE:  Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
1-800-369-7675, 1-402-399-6402, or 1-402-462-8897. All sales will be listed 
anonymously and organized by state.  General trends and summaries from this 
data will be posted on the Daily Sales Reported to DTN page.
