DTN COMMENTS:  The country is slow to start this morning with just a 
Regional in Nebraska placing a few scattered bids on the table. In all other 
areas bids remain scarce. Asking prices are around $112 to $113 in the 
South, and $178 to $180 in the North. It is looking like it could be another 
round of late week trade. Beef cutouts are expected to be mixed with light 
to moderate box movement.

NOTE: Cargill has reported an explosion at a small standalone building that 
is part of the Dodge City, KS complex. Operations have been suspended as an 
extra precaution. Two employees are being treated for burns. Cargill says 
they expect to meet all of its supply commitments to beef buyers.  

NOTE:  Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
1-800-369-7675, ext. 3678. All sales will be listed anonymously and 
organized by state. All live sales are FOB and set for 1-9 day delivery. 
General trends and summaries from this data will also be posted on the Daily 
Sales Reported to DTN page.
