Significant trade volume will likely be delayed until the second half of the week. New showlists appear to be slightly higher in Texas, and lower in Kansas and Nebraska/Colorado. Today's slaughter totaled 119,000 head, 40,000 more than last week and 2,000 above a year ago. Cattle futures closed mixed on both live (off 62 to up 32, deferred fared better than nearbys) and feeder (up 60 to off 32 nearbys fared better than far deferreds) issues. Beef cutouts are expected to close higher with light to moderate box movement.
