DTN COMMENTS:  Light trade is evident in several areas this afternoon, but 
selling interest may be fading thanks to sharply higher futures. Cattle 
futures traded lower for most of the session, but then turned sharply higher 
in the last hour of business. Key reversals seem evident in both the live 
and feeder markets. More specifically live contracts may have confirmed the 
market bottom first suggested by the July lows. Our guess is that feedlot 
managers will at least temporarily pull cattle off the market, waiting to 
see if the board has more follow through on Wednesday.

Today's kill totaled 113,000 head, even with last week, but 2,000 more than 
a year ago. Cattle futures closed sharply higher, 75-200 points above 
Monday's settlement. Note that soon to be spot October live finished at 
107.47, 370 points above the early session low. Beef cutouts are expected to 
close lower with light to moderate box movement.
