Cash cattle trades today in Nebraska, $164 live and $264/$264.50 dressed, would be seen as confirming a spring high. Last week's trades in that location were mostly $165 with a few $166 live. Dressed last week was $265/$266. We would expect the South to also move at $1 lower when it does trade later this week. With a normal basis applied futures are suggesting live trade in the South at $161 next month, $158 in June and $156 in August.
