DTN COMMENTS:  The country is quiet this afternoon with business essentially 
done for the week. Following the trend of the last couple of weeks a light to 
moderate trade developed in the South on Wednesday with most sales marked at 
$126, about $2 higher than the prior weeks weighted averages. The North held 
out until yesterday and a moderate trade was reported with dressed deals at 
mostly $208, generally $3 with the prior week, while live trade ranged from 
$129 to $133.50, mostly $130, roughly $3 higher than the prior week's weighted 
average basis Nebraska. 

Beef cutouts at midday were higher (choice 233.86 +0.80, Select 220.40 +0.94) 
with light box movement (27.57 lds of choice cuts, 8.29 lds of select cuts, 
3.11 lds of trim, and 14.86 lds of ground). Cattle futures are not available 
due to the Good Friday holiday.
