COMMENTS: A light trade developed in parts of both the North and the 
South this afternoon. Northern dressed trade was at mostly $187, roughly $3 
lower than last week's weighted average basis Nebraska. Southern live biz 
was at $115, generally $5 lower than the prior week's weighted averages. 
According to the Mandatory reports listed above trade volume totals look 
very light, but tomorrow's summaries will likely show somewhat higher trade 
volume totals as much of today's trade was done after Mandatory cutoff time. 
This early trade seems to be due in part to another round of sharply lower 
cattle futures and outside markets, due to growing coronavirus concerns.
