DTN COMMENTS: Cattle country is very quiet this afternoon with business 
probably done for the week. Trade volume totals look moderate at best, but 
that is not surprising given next week's holiday shortened slaughter 
schedule. 
 
Today's slaughter totaled 118,000 head, 6,000 greater than last week and 
3,000 more than a year ago. Saturday's kill is estimated at 48,000, bringing 
the weekly total to 639,000 head, 16,000 above the previous week, and 10,000 
higher than 2016. Cattle futures closed lower on live contracts off 45 to 90 
and sharply lower on feeder issues off 100 to 217. Beef cutouts are expected 
to close mixed with light to moderate box movement.
