DTN COMMENTS:  A light to moderate trade is developing in parts of the South 
at $119, $1 higher than last week's weighted average. Some asking prices 
remain firm around $121 to $122 in the South, and $190 to $193 in the North. 

Today's slaughter totaled 120,000 head, 2,000 smaller than a year ago, and 
not comparable to last week's holiday kill. Cattle futures closed modestly 
to moderately higher on live contracts (up 7 to 47) and mostly modestly 
lower on feeder contracts (off 10 to 37). Beef cutouts are expected to close 
sharply lower, with light to moderate box movement.
