DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning, with both buyers and
sellers busy taking inventory. Bids and asking prices have yet to be
established. Last week's trade took place mostly late Friday afternoon
with Southern live sales at 159.00, mostly $1.00 lower than the previous
week, while Northern dressed business was generally steady with the bulk
of last week's trade at 254.00. While last week's trade volume totals look
minimal, we don't expect to see any significant trade develop before
Wednesday this week. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with generally
light box movement.
