DTN COMMENTS:  Feedlot country is quiet at midday with just a few lower bids 
evident in the North. Trade volume on Wednesday was moderate to fairly 
active, and we suspect that business is essentially done for the week.  To 
be sure, we could see a few cleanup deals here and there, but any late week 
price action is likely to be no better than steady/weak with Wednesday's 
lower market. 

Beef cutouts are higher at midday (Choice 201.16 +0.84, Select 194.35 +0.62) 
with light box movement (25.22 lds of choice cuts, 15.84 lds of select cuts 
8.12 lds of trim, and 3.83 lds of ground). Cattle futures are generally 
lower with feeders losing more ground to their live counter parts.
