COLORADO . . . . . IOWA . . . . . *PRIVATE SOURCES DTN COMMENTS: Just a few bids have been renewed today. Asking prices for cattle left on showlists are around $140 on a live basis, and $232-plus dressed. While it is looking like the bulk of sales have been completed in Nebraska and Iowa, trade volume totals in Kansas and Texas look a little light, so a little trade here and there is not out of the question today and/or tomorrow. A light to moderate trade has been reported over the last two days with Southern live business being marked at mostly $136 to $139, steady to $2 higher than last week's weighted averages. Northern dressed deals have had a full range of $223 to $236, mostly $230, roughly $4 higher than last week's weighted average basis Nebraska. Beef cutouts are lower at midday (choice 267.20 -1.02, select 245.05 -0.63) with light to moderate box movement (45.21 lds of choice cuts, 10.04 lds of select cuts, 4.24 lds of trim, and 5.72 lds of ground). Cattle futures near the top of the noon hour are mostly modestly lower on live contracts, and sharply lower on feeder issues.
