essentially done for the week. Northern dressed trade was at mostly $184 to 
$185, and $115 to $116 live. Southern business was at $114 to $115. Asking 
prices on cattle left on showlists are around $117 to $118 on a live basis. 

The May 1 cattle on feed totaled 11.8 million head 2% more than a year ago;

Marketing in April totaled 1.93, 7% higher than last year; Disappeared in 
April 60,000, 5% lower than last year.

Today's slaughter totaled 119,000 head, 2,000 more than last week, but 2,000 
below a year ago. Saturday's kill is estimated at 45,000 head, bringing the 
weekly total to 641,000 head, 19,000 lower than the prior week, but 10,000

were spot month June live which ended 37 points higher and spot August 
feeders which were 20 points higher. Beef cutouts are expected to close
