IOWA . . . . . *PRIVATE SOURCES DTN COMMENTS: The country is very quiet this afternoon with just a few bids renewed in Nebraska. Asking prices for cattle left on showlists are around $125 in the South and $198 in the North. This week Southern live deals have had a range of $118 to $122, mostly $121, $4 higher than last week's weighted averages. Northern dressed business has had a range of $192 to $196, mostly $195 to $196, roughly $5 to $6 higher than the bulk of last week's trade. While we may see a little cleanup today, it is looking like the majority of business is essentially done for the week. Today's slaughter totaled 111,000 head, 6,000 more than a week ago, and 24,000 greater than last year. Saturday's kill is estimated at 66,000 head, binging the weekly total to 641,000 head, 32,000 larger than the prior week, and 112,000 above 2020. Cattle futures closed mostly moderately to sharply lower on live contracts, off 245 to up 62, while feeders ended the day mostly sharply lower off 237 to up 45, note only one far deferred contract was higher on both live and feeder issues. Beef cutouts are expected to close higher with light to moderate box movement.
