DTN COMMENTS:  A light to moderate trade has developed in the North and 
South. Dressed deals in Nebraska and Iowa are at mostly $175, generally 
$4.50 higher than last weeks weighted average basis Nebraska. A few Regional 
in Nebraska have paid $176 to $178, these are set for delayed delivery (the 
week of September 2nd). Southern live trade is at mostly $106, generally $1 
higher than last week's weighted averages.

Beef cutouts are significantly lower at midday (choice 237.88 -1.40, select

select cuts, 0.00 lds of trim, and 13.45 lds of ground). Cattle futures near
