DTN COMMENTS:  Feedlot country remains at a standstill this afternoon with 
only a few bids noted in parts of the North. Asking prices are firm at 149-
150 in the South, and 242-243 in the North. Significant trade volume could 
develop on Thursday if packers and feedlot managers desire to complete 
business prior a long holiday weekend. 

Today's kill totaled 115,000 head, 2,000 below last week and 6,000 smaller 
than a year ago. Cattle futures closed moderately higher, boosted by late 
short covering and the premium status of recent cash business. Beef cutouts 
are expected to close higher with moderate box movement.
