LAST WEEK'S ROUND UP:  Trade came in a little bit each day 
last week, and it was another round of price ranges so large 
you could drive a truck through them (between $10 to $16).  
Nebraska's dressed deals ranged from $178 to $190, while 
Iowa's dressed range was $174 to $190. Kansas live prices 
ranged from $110 to $120, while Texas had a full range of 
$108 to $120. Where will weighted averages fall when 
summaries come out later this morning? Well, that is 
anybody's guess at this point. According to the Friday 
afternoon Mandatory reports weekly trade volumes were as 
follows: KS 21,911; NE 39,978; TX 6,432; IA 28,197; CO not 
available due to confidentiality. 

DTN MORNING COMMENTS:  USDA summary reports have been delayed, 
we will release this information as soon as it is made 
available to us. 

A few scattered deals have been reported in parts of Nebraska 
this morning at $187, certainly not enough to establish any 
kind of a trend. Asking prices have yet to be fully 
established. New showlists appear to be higher in all major 
feeding areas, especially in Texas. Beef cutouts are sharply 
lower at midday (Choice 350.31 -13.03, Select 329.67 -10.40), 
with light to moderate box movement (41.20 lds of choice cuts, 
9.16 lds of select cuts, 3.97 lds of trim, and 13.85 lds of 
ground). Cattle futures at the top of the noon hour are mixed 
on live contracts and mostly sharply higher on feeder issues.

For the week ending May 23, 2020, Imported Beef Passed for 
Entry in the U.S. totaled 40,697, 97.60% of the previous week 
and 105.90% of the 4-week average.

supplied by DTN subscribers in the interest of general cash 
market awareness. All cattle feeding subscribers are encouraged 
to report sales in a timely fashion in order to compensate for 
the systematic delays of mandatory reporting. While all

required to identify themselves and the location of the actual 
sales. DTN believes this data to be accurate but cannot 
guarantee its specific reliability or whether it fairly 
represents the larger cash market.

1-800-369-7675, ext. 3678. All sales will be listed anonymously 
and organized by state. General trends and summaries from this 
data will also be posted on the Daily Sales Reported to DTN
