19,025; TX 6,779; IA 17,554, CO NA due to confidentiality. 
Friday's slaughter totaled 119,000 head, 10,000 greater than 
the prior week, and 4,000 head more than the previous year. 
Saturday's slaughter was estimated at 64,000 head, bringing 
the weekly total to 666,000 head, 114,000 above the week 
before, and 38,000 over 2020.

DTN MORNING COMMENTS: Following last week where cattle traded 
$1.00 higher in the North but steady in the South, feedlots are 
expected to price cattle higher again this week. Monday's 
market is expected to be slow as usual as the industry 
configures its new showlists and finds out exactly how many 
cattle traded last week.

Bids and asking prices are not established as of yet, and 
significant trade volume will likely be delayed until the 
second half of the week. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher 
with generally light box movement.

For the week ending February 20, 2021, Imported Beef Passed for 
Entry in the U.S. totaled 31,398, 91.07% of the previous week 
and 86.88% of the 4-week average.
