DTN COMMENTS:  The country remains very quiet this afternoon, with bids very 
illusive. Asking prices are around $110 on a live basis, and $175 dressed. A 
light to moderate trade has been reported in some areas this week at $105 
live, $4 lower than last week's weighted average basis the South, while a 
light Northern dressed trade was reported yesterday at mostly $168, $6 lower 
than the prior week's weighted average basis Nebraska. We should need to see 
more business develop this week, especially in the North, but it is possible 
that significant trade in the South could essentially be done for the week.

Today's slaughter totaled 99,000 head, 16,000 below last week, and 13,000 
smaller than a year ago. Live cattle contracts closed mostly lower, with 
only the spot April contract higher (off 230 to up 117), while feeder issues 
ended the day mixed, (up 132 to off 47). Just a reminder that CME/CBT 
livestock and grain futures markets will be closed tomorrow in observance of 
Good Friday. Beef cutouts are expected to close mixed, with light to 
moderate box movement.
