DTN COMMENTS:  Packer inquiry is generally light at midday with just a few 
starter bids evident here and there. Some asking prices have been suggested 
around 126.00-127.00 in the South, and 195.00-197.00 plus in the North. 
Given the way higher futures and weakening basis levels seem to be 
supporting feedlot resolve, we probably won't see significant trade volume 
until sometime Friday. 

Beef cutouts are higher at midday (Choice 205.53 +0.79, Select 195.66 +0.01) 
with light to moderate box movement (43.21 lds of choice cuts, 29.63 lds of 
select cuts, 5.50 lds of trim, and 13.85 lds of ground). Cattle futures are 
sharply higher near the top of the noon hour, supported by aggressive short 
covering, technical buying, and ideas of greater cash stability.
