SEE FRIDAY'S DAILY DIRECT SLAUGHTER CATTLE NEGOTIATED PURCHASES SUMMARIES 
BELOW

DTN COMMENTS:  Cattle country is typically quiet following the distribution 
of new showlists. Generally speaking, the offering appears to be mixed, 
larger in Texas, smaller in Kansas, and Nebraska and about even in Colorado. 
Overall midmonth offerings appear to be about steady with last week. Bids 
and asking prices are not expected to be evident until Wednesday or later. 

Today's slaughter totaled 118,000 head, even with last week, but 1,000 
more than a year ago. Cattle futures closed narrowly mixed with nearby 
feeder issues attracting the most selling interest. Beef cutouts are 
expected to close higher, with generally light box movement.
