IOWA 70 117.00 . . . *=PRIVATE SOURCES DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this afternoon with business done for the week. Trade volume totals look to be moderate at best suggesting that producers are carrying over some steers and heifers into next week. Today's kill totaled 114,000 head, 3,000 below last week, but 2,000 more than a year ago. Saturday's slaughter is estimated at 58,000, bringing the weekly total to 641,000 head, 7,000 above the previous week, and 62,000 greater than 2016. Note that Thursday's kill was revised down to 116,000 head. Cattle futures closed higher, supported by late week short covering and profit taking. Beef cutouts are expected to close lower with light to moderate box movement.
