DTN COMMENTS:  The country is quiet this afternoon with business seemingly 
done for the week. Although it is possible that there may be a little 
cleanup trade reported by Mandatory later this afternoon.  

Today's kill totaled 115,000 head, 1,000 head more than last week, and 2,000 
head above a year ago. Saturday's slaughter is estimated at 52,000 head, 
bringing the weekly total to 634,000 head, 7,000 head below the previous 
week, but 32,000 head greater than 2016. Cattle futures closed mixed thanks 
to a combination of long-liquidation and short-covering. Beef cutouts are 
expected to close lower with light to moderate box movement.
