DTN COMMENTS: A light trade has been reported in parts of Eastern 
Nebraska at $293 to $295, steady with yesterday's decline. Some of these 
cattle are set for delayed delivery (the week of April 29th). Some 
scattered trade has also been reported in parts of Texas at steady money 
with yesterday.

A light trade was reported yesterday with Southern live deals at $182, $2 
lower than last week's weighted averages. Northern dressed sales were 
marked at $293 to $295, $2 to $4 lower than last week's weighed average 
basis Nebraska. Some business came in after the Mandatory cutoff, so it 
will be interesting to see just where trade volume totals land when 
summary reports are released a little later this morning. 

Today's slaughter totaled 109,000 head, 6,000 below last week, and 4,000 
less than a year ago. Saturday's kill is estimated at 12,000 head, 
bringing the weekly total to 603,000 head, 10,000 under the prior week, 
and down 8,000 from 2023. Cattle futures closed sharply lower on both live 
(off 135 to 280) and feeder (off 157 to 405) contracts. Beef cutouts are 
expected to close higher with light to moderate box movement.
