DTN COMMENTS:  A large string has been reported sold in Nebraska this 
afternoon at $103 live, $3 higher than last week's weighted average. Other 
than that most in that area remain locked in a standoff, but should need to 
move more cattle. Asking prices for cattle left on showlists are around $104 
plus in the South, and $164 plus in the North. 

According to the just released on feed report cattle and calves on feed as 
of September 1 totaled 11.0 million head, 1% below 2018; placed in August 
1.88 million head, 9% below a year ago; marketing's in August 1.95 million 
head, 2% below 2018; disappeared in August 61,000 head, 11% above a year 
ago. There's no argument that today's Cattle on Feed Report comes back 
bullish. Placements coming in even lower than analysts' projects goes to 
show just how much affect the Tyson packing plant fire had upon the 
industry. Very few cattle traded, and most cattlemen found it easier to keep 
their pens full than try to sell pens on a down and volatile market. 

Today's slaughter is estimated at 116,000, 7,000 more than last week, but 
3,000 below a year ago. Cattle futures ended the day mostly modestly lower 
on live contracts (off 22 to 67) and mixed, mostly lower on feeder issues 
(up 37 to off 57), the first two contract months were the only ones to end 
the day in the green. Beef cutouts are expected to close mixed with light to 
moderate box movement.
