DTN COMMENTS:  The country remains quiet this afternoon with only a small 
cleanup deal reported in Nebraska. It looks like business essentially done 
for the week. 

Today's kill totaled 100,000 head, 2,000 less than last week, and 16,000 
smaller than a year ago. Saturday's slaughter is estimated at 10,000, 
bringing the weekly total to 568,000 head, 5,000 below the previous week, 
and 47,000 lower than 2013. Beef cutouts are expected to close mixed with 
light to moderate box movement. A reminder, the board is closed today in 
observance of the Good Friday holiday.
