DTN COMMENTS: Light to moderate business is evident in parts of the North 
this afternoon. Most dressed business so far looks nearly $5 higher than 
last week's weighted average basis Nebraska. More trade volume will develop 
over the next several hours, but the general price range has probably been 
established.

The April 1 on feed report released this afternoon looks neutral with all 
three categories coming in close to trade expectations: on feed up 7%; 
placed in March off 9%; and marketed in March off 4%.

Today's slaughter totaled 114,000 head, 2,000 below last week, but 7,000 
more than a year ago. Saturday's kill is estimated at 40,000 head, bringing 
the weekly total to 624,000 head, 19,000 above the previous week, and 23,000 
greater than 2017. Cattle futures closed with solid progress, supported by 
greater packer spending in the country. Beef cutouts are expected to close 
higher with light to moderate box movement.
