DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning with bids and asking
prices not fully established as packers are busy securing new showlists.
Last week's business exploded on Thursday and Friday with some Northern
dressed and Southern live deals marked as much as $10.00 higher than the
previous week. Trade volume totals were adequate in the North, but rather
light in the South. Significant trade volume will probably be delayed
until the second half of this week. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher
on light box movement.
