LAST WEEK'S ROUND UP: A light to moderate trade developed in 
most areas late Friday afternoon. Northern dressed deals ranged 
from $185 to $188, mostly $188, generally $1 higher than the 
previous week's weighted average basis Nebraska. Southern live 
business ranged from $118 to $119, mostly $119, generally 
steady with the previous week. According to the Friday 
afternoon Mandatory report totals weekly trade volumes were as 
follows: KS 13,095; NE 6,455; TX 3,251; CO 0; IA 7,715. Keep in 
mind that significant trade volume was still coming in after 
the Mandatory report cutoff time.

DTN MORNING COMMENTS:  The country is quiet this morning with 
business limited to the collection of new showlists. 
Significant trade volume will likely be delayed until the 
second half of the week. Beef cutouts are expected to be mixed 
with generally light box movement.
For the week ending December 08, 2018, Imported Beef Passed for 
Entry in the U.S. totaled 37,320, 135.72% of the previous week 
and 106.48% of the prior 4-week average.
