Significant trade volume will likely be delayed until Wednesday or Thursday. New showlists appear to be mixed, higher in Nebraska/Colorado, but lower in Texas and Kansas. Today's slaughter totaled 127,000 head, 1,000 below last week, but 6,000 greater than a year ago. Cattle futures closed mixed on live contracts, off 12 to up 17, while feeder issues ended the day moderately to sharply lower, up 27 to 132. Beef cutouts are expected to close lower with light to moderate box movement.
