DTN COMMENTS:  A light trade is being reported in parts of the South at $155 
to $156, $1 to $2 higher than the rest of the week's business, and fully 
steady to $1 higher than last week's weighted averages. Northern dressed 
business has been marked at mostly $247, $2 lower than last week's weighted 
averages. 

Today's slaughter totaled 120,000 head, 3,000 less than both a week and year 
ago. Saturday's kill is estimated at 24,000 head, bringing the weekly total 
to 652,000 head, 11,000 below the prior week, and 30,000 under 2021. Live 
cattle futures closed moderately to sharply higher, up 2 to 162, while 
feeder cattle contracts ended the day modestly higher, up 5 to 45. Beef 
cutouts are expected to close mixed, with moderate box movement.
