DTN COMMENTS:  The country is slow to start this morning with just a few 
scattered bids noted in Nebraska so far, but we expect packer inquiry will 
improve over the next several hours. Having said that it is possible that 
significant trade volume could be delayed until after the July 1 on feed 
report is released this afternoon. Asking prices are around 121.00-122.00 in 
the South, and 190.00-192.00 in the North. Beef cutouts are expected to be 
mixed with light to moderate box movement.

NOTE:  Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
1-800-369-7675, 1-402-399-6402, or 1-402-462-8897. All sales will be listed 
anonymously and organized by state.  General trends and summaries from this 
data will be posted on the Daily Sales Reported to DTN page.
