DTN COMMENTS: The cash market is naturally untested at this afternoon as 
packers and feedlot managers complete the distribution of new showlists.  It 
looks like the pre-holiday offering is generally smaller with only Nebraska 
showing more ready steers and heifers. 

Today's cattle slaughter totaled 119,000 head, 1,000 smaller than last Monday 
and 6,000 greater than 2016. Cattle futures closed mostly lower with the 
exception of spot Dec live that surged higher thanks to recent feedlot sales.  
Beef cutouts should close higher with light box movement.

For the weekending December 09, 2017, Imported Beef Passed for Entry in the 
U.S.  totaled 36,066,  91.68% of the previous week and 101.70% of the prior 4 
week average.
