DTN COMMENTS:  The late week cash market is generally quiet at midday. Yet 
it would appear that some Northern packers are trying to buy additional 
cattle before breaking for the long holiday weekend. Asking prices on unsold 
cattle at this point appear to be around 128.00 plus in the South, and 
200.00 plus in the North. 

Beef cutouts are lower at midday (Choice 222.31 -0.41, Select 201.73 -1.53), 
with light box movement (37.48 lds of choice cuts, 24.01 lds of select cuts, 
0.00 lds of trim, and 15.03 lds of ground). Cattle futures are moderately 
higher near the top of the noon hour, supported by follow through buying and 
pre-holiday short-covering.
