DTN COMMENTS:  A few deals have been reported in central Nebraska at $119 to 
$120, steady to $1 higher than last week's weighted average, and in Colorado 
at $120, fully steady. Some asking prices remain firm around $122 live and 
$195 plus dressed. A light to moderate trade took place in the South 
yesterday at mostly $120, generally $1 higher than last week's weighted 
averages. Some sources are saying that business in this area is essentially 
done for the week, although we may see a few cleanup deals. The North 
remained rather quiet yesterday, so we should see trade in develop there 
sometime today and/or tomorrow. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower, with 
light to moderate box movement.
