DTN COMMENTS:  Cattle country is generally quiet this afternoon. Some 
packers still act like they need to buy more cattle. Indeed, trade volume 
totals remain fairly light. It's possible that some will delay pulling the 
trigger until after the on feed report. Asking prices are around 244.00 plus 
in the North and 154.00-155.00 in the South.

Today's kill totaled 112,000 head, 1,000 more than last week, but 12,000 
below a year ago. Note that Wednesday's slaughter was revised up 3,000 head 
to 116,000. Cattle futures closed mixed in the live pit and mostly lower in 
the feeder trade. Beef cutouts are expected to close lower with light to 
moderate box movement.
