GENERAL COMMENTS

Activity in cattle country is limited in the early round with a few bids in Nebraska noted at $235-235. Asking prices appear to be around $152-plus in the South and $245-plus in the North. There may be few more cattle sold yesterday than previous thought, a light test at $148 in Kansas $2 lower) and a small test in Nebraska at $240 (steady). It looks like hog buyers remain hungry for live inventory this morning with bids as much as $1-2 higher.
