Afternoon National Slaughter Cattle Review as of 2:00 pm Friday

So far for Friday trading in Kansas has been slow to moderate with light to moderate

demand. Compared to last week live sales sold 2.00 lower at 168.00. Thus far for 

Friday trading in the Texas Panhandle, Northern Plains and Iowa/Minnesota has been

trend. Last week live sale sold at 170.00 in the Texas Panhandle, Norhtern Plains and

Iowa/Minnesota. For the prior week dressed sales sold at 265.00 in Nebraska and from 

264.00-265.00 in the Western Cornbelt.
