Live and dressed prices are generally steady with last week, though the Northern comparisons may be a bit firmer. Our guess is that business for the week is essentially completed. Cattle futures are higher at midday with live contracts gaining on their feeder counter parts. Beef cutouts are significantly higher at midday (Choice 190.37 +1.15, Select 189.31 +1.12) with light to moderate box movement (60.60 lds of choice cuts, 10.91 lds of select cuts, 2.27 lds of trim, and 14.93 lds of ground).
