DTN COMMENTS: Cattle buying interest is picking up this afternoon following 
moderate trading in the South earlier in the day with live sales generally $1 
lower than last week. are told a Northern regional has bid up to $188.50 on 
some cattle. Note that some cattle in South Dakota have sold as high as $120. 
Furthermore, it sounds like at least one major in Nebraska has paid $120 on 
cattle located in the central part of the state (i.e., .50 higher than last 
week's weighted average). At this point, our guess is that the South is 
essentially done for the week, but the North may not finish until sometime 
Wednesday.  Showlists seem to be priced around $119-120 live and $190 dressed.
     Today's cattle slaughter totaled 120,000 (WTD 240,000), 2,000 more than 
last week (WTD 235,000) and 4,000 greater than 2016 (WTD 232,000). Live and 
feeder futures rebounded with triple digit gains, supported by short covering 
and pre holiday short covering.  Beef cut-outs should close sharply higher with 
light to moderate box movement.
